Use this digital Google video writing assignment as a way to foster student creative thinking while also helping to improve their writing. In this paperless assignment, students will create and design a new school, write about their first day at school from the first person perspective, and create an advertisement campaign to recruit new students.

This is a Google resource and students complete all the work on the computer. This works well with distance learning, 1:1 classrooms, remote teaching, Google Classroom, or online education. 

The best part is that your purchase comes with a hand-drawn video, created by the talented John Spencer, that introduces the assignment to hook students in! Watch the preview video on this page to get a sneak peek of the video included and download the preview to get a closer look at the instructions, brainstorming slides, writing organizers, editing checklist, and advertisement project slides/organizers included! There is absolutely no prep required to implement this fully digital lesson/assignment/project!
