How About a Tug of War? Making Thinking Visible-good idea for opinion writing
This is a great strategy for increasing engagement with high school students. I think that it would be great to use as an introduction activity for argumentative writing. I could either use this lesson a couple times during one week, or I could even divide the class into a couple smaller tug of wars. I can't really think of an my negatives for this one. I think it's a great idea!

Student autobiography writing is really important to teach to students. This would work well for the first week of school when students are getting to know each other and for the Teacher to learn about the students. Instead of a sillohette maybe post an actual picture of the students?
