Activities to Create Yearlong Momentum
Berger, Molly
English Journal, v98 n1 p53-56 Sep 2008
The first day of school used to be exhausting for the author. To change this, the author needed to capitalize on the enthusiasm of the first day, so now she shortens the time devoted to rules so she can begin to build on real learning right away. In this article, the author shares three of her favorite opening activities. Using popular culture and multimedia technology, the author's beginning-of-the-year assignments engage her high school English students in building skills and concepts they will use all year.
