Our Open House/Meet the Teacher night is the week after school starts. Should I have something there for the parents?? What do you guys usually do? The teacher before me had packets made about the benefits of high school journalism, so I'm putting those out for them to pick up. I thought about making extra copies of the syllabus, grade requirements, etc. in case they don't make it home to parents?? And then a sign-in sheet so kids can get extra credit for coming. Anything else? I teach journalism (mostly freshmen), newspaper (juniors & seniors) and yearbook (mostly sophomores & juniors).
