This is the perfect assignment to begin the year in your English class! Students make a list of ten things they would like for the class to know about them, then choose one to write about in a paragraph. I like to use this as both an opportunity to get to know my students and to assess the quality of their writing at the beginning of the year. The assignment comes with a sample list and paragraph to make it easier for students to understand what is expected. Appropriate for 6-12.
