Setting a Teacher Resolution for 2019
Even though we're nearing the halfway point of the school year, it seems kind of strange to be talking about resolutions. But, as we head into 2019, what would you like your #oneword or Teacher Resolution be? Do you have one? If you select one, you could share it out or keep it private. Additionally, imagine doing this with your students. What is one thing that they want to accomplish this year at school? Below are a few ways to document this idea for yourself, or as an activity.
Teacher Mission Statements
Using Google Classroom
If you decide to do this activity with your students, there are a few different tools they can use. The simplest is Google Classroom. A teacher can post a Short Answer question on the Google Classroom page and have students respond that way. They could create simple Student Mission Statements, or simply have them select a word and explain why they chose that for themselves moving forward. This could be recorded in this cohesive list on Google Classroom.

Record Responses with Flipgrid
Yet another amazing use to amplify your students' voices, Flipgrid is another terrific tool. Set up a Topic for your students' mission statements or word. Then, they could have a designated amount of time (set by you) to explain their word or statement, why they chose it or included what they did, and demonstrate their goals using their individual devices.
