This is a week-long unit designed to kick off the school year. Students will complete three assignments that require them to do self-reflection and think about their personal goals. These assignments will give the teacher a great insight into who their students are on a more personal level. The assignments are fun but at the same time challenging. At the end of the unit, students will design a time capsule into which they will place all of the assignments they completed during the week. The time capsules will be sealed up until the last week of the school year. When students open them in June they always have fun reading what they wrote back in August and reflecting on how much they have personally grown and changed during the year.
