Advisory Idea: “Wreck This Journal”

Take up journaling with a twist.  Keri Smith has created a journal that fits in nicely with advisory.  Wreck This Journal is designed to create something new and unique through destroying part of the journal in the process.  Pages like “Chew this page” and “Draw with glue” approach journaling from a much different angle than students are used to.  It takes the student into another way of looking at an everyday task.  The final project in the journal is to tape it shut and mail it to yourself, a sealed time capsule of the year.  I’m told that some Language Arts teachers use it in their classes so asking around the building first might be a good idea.  Any of you used it with your students?
