Have you ever seen Jimmy Fallon's Late Night skit called "Dramatic Readings of Bad Yelp Reviews"? I saw a clip in my Facebook feed the other day and it got me thinking...what if students wrote Yelp reviews of their teachers? Are you brave enough to solicit that kind of feedback?
I posted some end of the year ideas on my old blog a few years ago. This is such a great reason why you should be blogging if you haven't started already. It was really helpful to look back on what I had planned that year and reflect on how things went. My blog wasn't the only thing that got an extreme makeover; some of my lesson ideas for the end of the year have been upgraded as well. Some lessons have been formatted to Hyperdocs (digital lessons) so I can share those lessons here with you now. This post will continue to be a reminder of the awesome fun that we have had ending the year, as well as a reminder of fun I hope to have another year.
I am a lifelong learner and have had the privilege of also being called a teacher for eighteen years.
Like this blog? Are you a middle school English teacher? Check out my 20% time project. Genius Hour isn't just for students; my passion project is called "The Book Somm." It's a separate blog dedicated entirely to my love of literature. I read books and build a menu of paired texts and lessons around the YA novels that I love.
