New school year resolutions

We usually decide to make new resolutions at the beginning of the school year or to start a new calendar year. Hence this scholastic sequence finds its full meaning in one or the other of these periods. The teacher may choose to use it from September, in connection with the implementation of the rules of classroom life, or in January, in order to restart the students’ motivation. By bringing together class life and personal decisions, students work in parallel with collective life rules (Common Core Skill 6) and self-evaluation (Common Core Skill 7).

A series designed by Martin Portron, Education Advisor, Besancon Academy, Toll 1 District.
