The Holiday Season in the Secondary ELA Classroom: Helping Students to Think of Others

December 09, 2016

Don't fight the holiday spirit! Embrace it by incorporating holiday themed lessons and activities in your classroom. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed their schools approach the holidays and how they recognize the holidays in their own classroom. Teachers also shared how to keep students focused on learning and encourage students to think of others this time of year. Read through the chat for ideas to implement in your own classroom.
This #2ndaryELA Twitter chat was all about celebrating the holidays in the ELA classroom. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed their schools approach the holidays and how they recognize the holidays in their own classroom. Teachers also shared how to keep students focused on learning and encourage students to think of others this time of year.

Read through the chat below for events and activities to bring the holiday spirit into your school and your classroom. You'll get ideas about holiday themed readings and lessons. You'll also find ways to focus students on giving rather than getting.

Hope you'll join us when we return on January 10th of 2017. We'd also love for you to join our 2ndaryELA Facebook group (even if you aren't on Twitter). 2ndaryELA is a group of middle and high school English Language Arts teachers looking to share ideas and best practices. This group is an extension of our Twitter chat and a place for collaboration, questions, and encouragement. Feel free to post teaching ideas, success stories, resource links, photos, etc. that will enhance our instruction.
