Confessions of an Ex-Freshman: A Survival Guide for Freshmen by Sophomores Who Made It Through
Tips on surviving high school, from sophomores to future freshmen.
The first year of high school hands students sizable changes and surfaces many questions. Thankfully, the 10th grade authors of this book lived to tell the tales of their freshman year, and offer incoming freshmen anecdotes and advice. Students offer reflections on grades, extracurricular activities, relationships, and fashion, to name a few. Describing the thrills and challenges in and out of the classroom, these students know a thing or two about surviving high school.
Curriculum Embedded Project
Teacher Lindsey Elenson at the Institute for Media and Writing asked her 10th grade ELA students to give advice to future Freshman - advice they could have used or wish they had listened to themselves. The intensive writing process brought about personal revelations about the choices they had made last year and turned out to be as beneficial to the writer as it may be to potential readers.
