Creating A Classroom Motto

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships through October 1st, 2021. Join today!


In this inductive lesson, students begin by brainstorming specifics and then end by synthesizing all of that information into one sentence: their classroom motto.

This lesson uses an inductive model of instruction. You can apply this same framework to academic topics as well.


  1. As a whole group, students brainstorm specific examples of appropriate or expected classroom behavior.
  2. Then, in small groups, they group those specific examples into three to five groups and eventually label those groups with a one or two-word phrase.
  3. Finally, students use the labels of their groups to generate a sentence summing up the expectations for the year. This is your classroom motto!

The registration window closes on October 1st, 2021
