Help ease your students into the new school year by pairing them up and assigning this fun introduction essay! After interviewing each other (using given questions or coming up with their own), they work independently to write a newspaper article introducing their partner. Articles can be compiled in a class book, posted on a bulletin board, shared orally, and more. Makes a great take home for students who leave early in the year and a great intro for students who enter your class later in the year!
Also a great ice breaker for staff at back to school meetings and PD opportunities :)
