This activity is a perfect assignment as the year nears Halloween, or anytime you study a piece of literature that deals with a character's fears.
The students determine three fears they have (however each must fit in a different category, as described in the assignment), and after describing each fear they write a response to it. In their response, the students explain how they can conquer their fear.
This handout includes:
-a description of the assignment
-a mini-rubric for easy grading
