A Fun Twist on Narrative Writing: The Homework Excuse Note

A Fun Twist on Narrative Writing:  The Homework Excuse Note
Product Description
Teachers have heard it all! Every excuse in the book for students not having their homework. Well, why not get students to do something with all this pent-up creativity! This assignment asks students to concoct the very best homework excuse note to you that they can. They can write this letter as themselves, but they could also do so as Huck Finn, Jim Hawkins, Charlotte Doyle, or just about anyone you can think of! This is such a fun assignment and can be modified in a variety of ways. You can have students write as characters in your core novel with vocabulary that you are studying, but you can also have them write it as themselves. An easy rubric is provided to make things as easy and painless as possible.
