First impressions. First impressions matter in conversations, in relationships, and in classrooms. Join this 90 minute interactive session led by the Ohio Writing Project (OWP) to think about and design the first days and weeks of your literacy classroom. Participants will discuss the role of the first days in creating classroom culture, review first day plans from other K-12 educators, practice strategies for starting a year focused on your beliefs, and have time to sketch out a plan to create the first impression and the literacy classroom you want for students.
