Speaking of handbooks, the Y4Y team recently had the pleasure of participating in the Multistate Conference in Indianapolis, IN where we heard excellent examples from the field of 21st CCLC. One middle school educator shared with us a great idea for creating student handbooks for incoming sixth grades: let the experts do it – the 7th and 8th graders!
Her veteran middle school students made a project out of creating informative and engaging handbooks that were then distributed to incoming sixth grade students at orientation. Who better to create a handbook on navigating the waters of middle school than the students themselves?
Thanks for sharing your ideas with us, and please keep them coming!
