This creative approach to writing instruction will engage even your most reluctant writers. This bundle includes everything you need to implement five outside-the-box writing assignments that your students will love. The best part is that each assignment comes with a hand-drawn video, created by the talented John Spencer that introduces the assignments to hook them in! Watch the preview video above to get a sneak peek of the videos included and download the preview to get a closer look at the writing assignments included.

These assignments work great during back to school as they each offer a unique opportunity to get to know your students!


WHAT ARE THE FIVE WRITING ASSIGNMENTS?

1. SOUNDTRACK OF MY LIFE
Students will create a mix-tape for their life by choosing ten songs that they connect with or that represent them.

2. MY GENERATION
Students will write an open letter discussing misunderstandings people have about their generation and why they are different than the way people perceive them.

3. MY LIFE IN THREE TEXTURES
Students will use persuasive and personal narrative writing to talk about their life using three textures.

4. MAKE YOUR OWN SCHOOL
Students will invent their own school, write about their first day, and develop a promotional advertisement to recruit students.

5. GEEK OUT
Students will share information on a topic that they geek out about and share their expertise with the class in the form of a listicle.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

• Students watch hand-drawn videos that introduce each of the five writing assignments. These videos are highly engaging and will hook your students immediately. Watch the video preview on the product page to get a sneak peek.

• Use the eye-catching PowerPoint presentations to introduce each of the assignments in detail to your class and guide you through the pre-writing, during writing, and post-writing process.

• Use the student informational handouts, pre-writing brainstorming sheets and graphic organizers, peer editing checklists, rough and final copy sheets to guide students through the writing process! Easy-to-use rubrics are also included for quick marking.
