Video: Backpack of Success Skills: Ready for Middle School

At Greathouse Shryock Traditional Elementary School, fifth grade students know they are ready for middle school – and they proudly demonstrate their readiness by presenting a ‘defense of learning’ to educators, in which they share learning artifacts and reflecting on their academic and personal growth as elementary students, now ready for the next stage of life.

A transcript of the video is available here.

Read the accompanying Video Reflection Guide to help prompt further ideas for your school or district context.
