I used this paragraph template to get my students to write about the career choice they want to pursue in the future. This is the perfect way to open up the school year by having this ready for Back to School night! Along with the writing, I took a picture of each student wearing my very own cap and gown from UCLA. Parents were overjoyed when they saw this! You can also use this to close your year and instead display it during Open House.
I first gave students time to research their career of choice. They used this to create their rough draft and then after they revised their work, they went ahead and published :)
