MY LIFE IN TEXTURES - BACK TO SCHOOL VIDEO CREATIVE WRITING ASSIGNMENT
Use this engaging back to school video writing assignment as a way to learn more about your students while also helping to improve their writing. In this assignment, students choose three textures that represent their life and use the forms of a personal narrative/descriptive writing to share their story. 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!
