Each and every Sunday I create my News & Announcements Charts for the week (i.e., for Morning Meeting). I just created one that I really like for this-coming Friday. It looks like this:
The #1 reason I like this chart is because of the geography tie-in. (Just thought of doing this since I recently purchased an empty states font on LetteringDelights. I also like this chart since Friday’s are our day that students share their poetry. The final reason I like this chart is because it draws their attention to what else they can do to make sure their persuasive letter is ready-to-go for the upcoming week. It is asking them to self-manage their learning, but to share their thinking with their peers in a public forum (i.e., the N&A Chart).
Just wanted to share…
