Secondary Smorgasborg 6-12: Classroom Traditions

Welcome to another installment of the Secondary Smorgasbord linky party! One of my favourite classroom traditions is my Christmas Career Project! I complete this with my grade 10 career class and they love it. My educational assistants, in particular, also look forward to the project each year as it's a lot of fun for everyone. Where I live in Canada, Christmas is overwhelmingly celebrated. As not all teachers would be able to use this project in their class (due to the various differences in holiday celebrations) I have a similar project - just not a holiday version - that might be useful for your students!

Thanks again to ELA Buffet and Desktop Learning Adventures for the link up opportunity!

  2. What a terrific idea! Talk about motivation - who wouldn't want to work at the North Pole? This just proves that learning is fun.

    Happy Holidays,
    Connie

  4. What a great idea to incorporate a career lesson into the holidays. I'm sure students do love it.

  7. personal statement revision can be tough at times especially when you’re not sure as to how you’re going to make your statement sound better.
