Today is our second to last day together this school year. It's crazy to think that we've been through a full school year already; it feels like you are still little kiddos starting your high school career!
To start today's class, I gave back to you the letters that you wrote to yourself on the first day of school. For you letter, you were supposed to write to your future self, congratulating yourself on all of your accomplishments and talking about how you made it through the tough times. This letter was a bit of a prediction.
Now, you're writing a second letter. This time, it's going to be addressed to me and it's a reflection rather than a prediction. In your letter, you need to include the following three paragraphs:
Paragraph 1: What were your biggest successes this year? How did you attain success in these areas?
Paragraph 2: What areas of improvement do you have for next year? What could you work on to become a more successful student?
Paragraph 3: Give advice to incoming Study Skills students (mostly freshmen). What do they need to know in order to be successful?
