1) Journal Prompt 1! I will not be grading these journals; they are supposed to get you thinking and being creative. You can use what you write here in any of your projects in the future.
2) Goal Setting! How many words do you want to write this semester? I require that you write either 10,000 words (for non-honors) or 12,500 words (honors), but do you want to write more than that? Create a thermometer to help you track your progress
3) Introduce Honors Mini lessons. (see resources page for more information)
4) Lower inhibitions and increase collaboration by playing Reverse Charades
