Just doing the work isn’t enough – students need to put forth their best effort to master content, develop a strong work ethic, and get the grades their parents are expecting 😉 It doesn’t work to just tell students ‘do your best’ or ‘give your best effort’ – we need to show them what this means! This lesson plan (whole group or small group) teaches students what different levels of effort look like using an ‘effort meter’ and example stories.
• PowerPoint for teaching what different levels of effort look like (both in behavior and outcome).
• Anchor chart pieces for what best effort feels like, looks like, and sounds like during teacher teaching time and independent work time
• Five work pages for defeating the excuses that get in the way of best effort
• Two character scenarios/stories with writing samples, both in PPT form and teacher script form (with character signs for acting out)
• Two versions of effort rubric visuals
• Two self-reflection exit tickets: one for specific assignments and one for overall effort
