I can not believe that next week is our last full week of school. After that, we have a three day week, and then we are done for the year.
Right now, it is more important than ever to keep students motivated. I am linking up with the wonderful Joanne from Head Over Heels for Teaching to share how students came up with a list of their own projects for motivation.
Our final writing project for the year is biographies (famous Ohioans). Students are currently working on their final drafts using Google Docs (which I love). I knew that when it came time to share, students would likely not be super attentive listening to 20+ other biographies. We decided that it would be best for students to share only the most important/interesting information about their person. Next, we just had to figure out the best way to do it.
Students brainstormed a list of projects. Some we completed this year. Some were favorites from last year, and some were ideas we just didn't get to this year. Here is the list students came up with.
I am off to check out the other motivating ideas that are linked up. Thank you, Joanne, for hosting this awesome linky.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
