In my Advanced Writing class today I had a very successful activity: a time capsule. Displaying a plastic container, I told them that it was going to house our class time capsule. We did it in two parts: first each student made a f ull page autobiography. Then I distributed to them four sheets of paper, at the top of each there was a different subject heading: Current Events, Sports, the Arts, and Life in an American University. Each student wrote 2 to 3 sentences on each of the topic papers, then passed on to the next student. After everyone finished, I photocopied their papers (for correction and return) and cermoniously placed the originals in the plastic bottle. It will be buried someplace on the campus later. The students seemed to enjoy this activity very much!
