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.
