I am attaching here a writing assignment that is ready to go and perfectly customizable! Students can work on this at home or in class. They can interview a family member in their homes or via Skype or Zoom.

I have broken this down in steps that make this assignment easy, engaging, and meaningful. A rubric is attached, along with additional resources that include the following:

* how to write dialogue

* ways to begin

* paragraph review

* MLA formatting

This is a wonderful way to help teach writing in a thoughtful way, while also learning more about their family.
