In the past year, I have started a daily diary with students. This includes interactive notebooks and tabs.
Questions for beginners may look like this:
What’s the date today?
What will tomorrow be?
What day was yesterday?
Questions for intermediate students might be:
What did you do this weekend?
If you saw someone robbing a bank, what would you do?
How have daily diary (journals) helped me class?
*I can check punctuation and grammar-especially in tricky English errors.
*It allows students to establish writing routines.
*At the end of the semester or year, it makes for a great review of all that we’ve learned!
