9th graders ask themselves: “What’s my sentence?” | Daniel Pink

March 5, 2010


I always like to check up on Dan Pink’s blog, and I encourage you to do so as often as you can.

I really liked this activity, so I thought I would pass it along.

In his newest book Drive, Dan Pink outlines an activity where you create one sentence to describe yourself.  This example he gives on his site talks about a ninth grade teacher that lead the activity with her students.  He has some great examples posted.

I think this is a quick, easy lesson to upgrade any class.  You can add purpose to your students’ motivation.  Great stuff!

    Reading Daniel Pink’s book this week carried a “clarifying” edge for me in the classroom too. Next week, I’ll use “What’s my sentence?” as a bell-ringer to begin to validate the value of a motivation 3.0 operating system.

      Thanks for commenting!
      You’ll have to let me know how it goes. I haven’t used the sentence activity yet, but I think it would be a great activity. I really like your idea of using it as a bell-ringer.
      Good luck!
