School Announcements as Questions

Here is an effective approach for any school:

Every day the morning announcements  END WITH A QUESTION designed to prompt reflection and responsibility in students. Posing a daily question directs the attention of everyone in the school (both students and teachers) to a specific issue or topic. Throughout the year, the school reinforces school-wide procedures, solves small problems, and encourages internal motivation through the announcements.

The school sees a lot of good coming from these questions because they provide a powerful way to influence students.

Kerry in British Columbia shared this idea.

Sample announcement questions are posted at her blog.
