We started off our 2016-2017 season of #2ndaryELA Twitter Chats with a great turn out. Lots of teachers shared their thoughts and ideas on engaging back to school activities to make the transition from summer to school more enjoyable for students.
Teachers are using their summers to prepare for their upcoming classes, organize their classroom, and learn new things through professional development workshops and books.
Many teachers shared that they are leaving the traditional introduction of rules, and the syllabus until day 2. Other teachers shared ideas for hashtag get to know you activities, shoeboxes full of mementos and letter writing templates.
Everyone who participated had one thing in common - an excitement for the coming school year.
