Use this digital Google video writing assignment as a way to learn more about your students while also helping to improve their writing. In this paperless assignment, students choose three textures that represent their life and use the forms of a personal narrative/descriptive writing to share their story.

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 above to get a sneak peek of the video included and download the preview to get a closer look at the instructions, student information slides, writing organizers, editing checklist and assignment slides included! There is absolutely no prep required to implement this digital lesson/assignment!



• Students watch a hand-drawn video that introduces the assignment to students to help them consider what textures they want to write about (lots of examples included).
