Reflection: Learning Communities Getting to Know You - Section 2: Getting to Know You


The idea for the Getting to Know You worksheet came from a long-ago college course. A professor used on the first of day class to get a group of young 20-somethings to interact. I was surprised and loved that it also gave us an opportunity to learn a little about him. Since then, I have used every year on the first day of sixth grade. Now it is your chance to personalize this activity.
