Lots of us love taking selfies. How about writing a letter to yourself to be delivered in the future? This student-favorite is based on a common practice for some teachers: Have students write a letter that will be held by the teacher and sent to the students in one year. The instructions for students include specific questions to answer and details to include. They are also prompted to reflect on memories of literature read during the class and an invitation to predict events for the year ahead. Includes BONUS instructions for automating sending an email at a future date. You can schedule sending the letter to your students by email next year if you have them submit their letter to you by email or some other online student management system.
