What grade level do you teach, and what goals do you have for your morning meeting?
7th grade! Topics that would interest 12-13 year olds.
Great age group for so many things! What about bringing up current events/social issues?
Ask open-ended questions about things that might affect them or that are happening right now in the world. This age group wants to see/know their world and feel like the conversations are relevant.
Talking about young adults/youth who are making positive change in the world is also engaging, for example asking them what they know about who Malala Yousafzai is and why/how she won the noble peace prize.
