This product includes five different writing assignments. The five different writing types are listed on the cover of the product. Each writing assignment lists what is to be included and explains potentially unfamiliar terms, so all should work well as independent enrichment, extra credit for the deserving, and/or writing activities that can be left for substitute teachers to administer. A substitute teacher can also divide the class into five groups, have each group tackle a different essay, and then all can share at the end of the class. Alternatively, each of the five groups can have to work together to craft one essay. Regardless of academic subject, this product is a good lesson to submit to your school admin, if you are required to have sub plans on file.
