Product Description
Since writing is an integral part of my teaching, I like to obtain an idea of each student's writing skills the very first day of school in September. Once we review the Syllabus for the class, I give students this assignment.

Not only does it help me to gauge how to focus the writing elements we will need to cover, but it also serves as a smooth transition for the students from the summer break to the new school year.I also like how this assignment gets the students thinking in an analytic manner, as the ability to think and analyze is another basic element of my teaching.
