This is an 8.5 X 11 poster that can be customized (Word version), or printed as-is (PDF version). The poster includes 12 "life rules" that have broad appeal. This is a good beginning of the school year poster that can be printed much larger at local copy stores or school district media centers. With the customizable version, you can change the layout, font, colors, rules, quote, graphic, and so on to target your specific content area. Each rule can be a good journal entry topic or point of discussion. In my class, students write their own thoughts about a specific rule in their journal, then share their writing with their square/group, and then each group presents a summary of their group's ideas to the class and then we engage in a discussion including possible examples from literature / history and make some real-life applications. Another activity could be to have the students create their own "life rules" and share and discuss those. Thanks for considering this item and have a great day!
