This is a project designed to provide the teacher will a large sample of individual students writing to server as an evaluation with high grade value.
Each students final product should yield 5-10 pages for final evaluation.
I really enjoyed this project because it allowed me to gather enough of each students writing to give a very accurate and detailed evaluation of their writing skills. With a sample this large any matters of correctness or skills which require improvement will in all likelihood surface multiple times. Reading over these projects gave me an in-depth picture of what each students writing strengths and weaknesses are.
This project is a fiction account of a students "dream vacation" to any 4-5 destinations around the world. The assignment is to be written creatively, however the destinations and accommodations have to be based on real places. Listed within the handout are all of the detailed instructions students are required to follow in order to meet the intended curricular outcomes.
This project meets a wide variety of English Language Arts outcomes. Based on my regions outcome requirements I could easily meet half. The remaining I could easily incorporate with small adaptations.
