We all want this- but how do we achieve this!? I love to complete this anchor chart activity at the beginning of the school year. I also did it with my summer school studnets- and look at their amazing responses! I am always surprised with how each class brings a new perspective to the topic. I am also proud of the converations it leads to. Whenever we are laying out ground rules for students (especially middles!!!) it’s important to share the why. When students cultivate this themselves (without even knowing it) it becomes even more effective.
