Ask your students to imagine themselves at an assembly in June. All of their classmates, teachers, staff, even parents are there.
What would happen if you asked students to "create their end-of-the-year legacy" the first week of school, and you had them review the legacy at the end of each grading period?
This post explores these questions, and discusses the writing component as "one of the most poerful and efficient social-emotional and character deveopment interventions you can do for grades 5-12." The post discusses concepts that will need to be taught as well as questions you may want to use for discussion.
