What’s Your Sentence?

What’s your sentence? What is one sentence that would convey what you are all about?

I loved this idea when I saw it in this video:

It’s part of Dan Pink‘s work on motivation, which I love.

I started incorporating “What’s your sentence?” into a professional development experience I facilitate.

The idea is that students can create sentences that reflect their future goals and desires for how people will view them.

I got an email from a teacher in Grand Prairie, Texas, who attended the session and used it with her students. With her permission, I share some of their sentences.

Aren’t they amazing?

It makes you believe in the world again, doesn’t it?

So a huge shout out to Kayla Ferrell of the Grand Prairie ISD who took her professional development experience and make it relevant to her students. Love it.

How about you? What’s your sentence?

Is this something you could do with students or your family?

Looking for inspiration? Here’s a high school class sharing their sentences.

My sentence is, “She was a teacher, even when she didn’t have a classroom.”

I created a printable format for this activity that you can download free here.
