I am a huge fan of Responsive Classroom and one of the elements of RC is encouraging students to write down/express their hopes and dreams. This year, I am displaying them in the hall to encourage students to share them with others. The students are super excited!
Responsive Classroom has some great resources for helping students to establish goals for the school year or each quarter.
How are your displaying your students hopes and dreams? Email pictures and I’ll put them up to share with other teachers! firstname.lastname@example.org
