Today I created a handout for students with a template for the Ten Toes or Ten Toes Down Challenge. You can find it here: Ten Toes Template – also, there is a bit of background information for teachers as well. (If you’re anything like me, Google and the Urban Dictionary are essential for navigating conversations with teenagers.)
This activity is recommended for high school level classes due to the mature themes in some of the sample videos. It could be used for helping students get the rhythm and rhyme scheme of poetry, helping them reflect on their past as they prepare for a new year, support technology in the classroom, or just give them a way to have fun while they are writing. Please comment back and let me know if you used this template, or post it on Twitter and shout me out @coachcollins951. Thanks!
