What sorts of projects do your students seem to really prefer? I offer a nice little assortment to choose from for each book we read but am looking for a few more.

One group newspaper project my 10th graders enjoyed working on was turning fiction into fact. Groups of three read three different short stories then wrote three newspaper articles about the stories from the perspective of a journalist. Students were instructed to report the "facts" of what happened with optional interviews of the characters in the stories. Each student wrote one article but worked together editing each other's work as well as designing and creating their newspaper.

For midterms this year, I had the students choose a research topic from the memoir we read, and create a Slides project. They got the rubric ahead of time, so they knew exactly what score they'd get. Easy on them, easy on me :)

Each year my students seem to really love using what we learned about narrative elements and how they interact/impact each other to write their own original works of science fiction. I've gotten about 4 total who tried to write out the plot of a movie or show they like and get 0s for plagiarism, but most students do a really great job with this assignment.

Choices!

How can I set the stage this year to negotiate a lower billable hours expectation instead of a raise? As a woman I'm hesitant to be open about my reason: I want more time at home with my kids. I lateraled to this firm a year ago for WLB and they are indeed flexible on WFH which helps. Salary is a bit below average for mid-size firms like mine in my area, and I didn't get a raise or bonus this year because I didn't hit the billable target (1900). Ideally I'd keep my salary but go to 1600 hours.

My husband and I (both 27) max out our Roth IRAs each year, have a complete emergency fund, and I’m able to start maxing my 401K this year (he contributes 10% to his 401K - it isn’t possible for him to max his based on his current pay). We contribute 18% extra towards principal on our mortgage each month. We now have about $20k of additional savings we want to figure out what to do with.
