First Day of Class

At the top of your paper write:

 Your Name & Connection Number 6a-## or 6b-##

IntroductionWHAT'S YOUR STORY?: I would like to get to know you by having you write a short paper about yourself. 

This is a short one page story that you will write about your life.  I really want it to be an interesting read so please tell lots of interesting stories.  I would like to know three sides of your life.  You can pick from some of the following or make up your own "sides" or aspect:

Here is a list:

Remember you are writing 3 paragraphs on 3 different sides of your life and also remember to write about your life as a story.  Don't just share lots of facts and miss the story part behind the facts.

Create a clear beginning and good ending.  Make sure the opening sentence captures the audience's attention. 

 Be sure to introduce yourself at the beginning somewhere! 

Dear Parents,

I am honored to serve as your child's teacher for the next 5 months and I am looking for ways to connect with them. For this reason, I am asking your child to give me a written profile of him/herself, and I’d like to invite you to participate if you would like by writing me a short paragraph about your child. Knowing how each student sees him/herself helps me to better serve his/her needs, and additional insights from you will help me understand more about your child so I can serve them better.

  1. How would you describe your son or daughter as a person? As a thinker or learner? As a student? As a reader and a writer?

  2. Are there certain activities, sports, careers or causes that he or she is passionate about?

  3. Finally, what are their biggest fears and challenges right now? What big events are coming up in the next six months for them?

Thank you so much for taking the time to share this information and I will closely guard what is written.  On the same note, please do not share information that is too personal that you would not like me to know. (* I tell this to the students as well)
