This writing assignment by Emily Jameson is a fun and somewhat different way for students to let their teachers know more about them while experimenting with a different voice and writing in third person instead of first. Students write a magazine or news article about themselves in the third person, attempting to convey relevant information about themselves in the casual, attention-getting style of a magazine or newspaper profile. Teachers can get helpful insights into their students, while students get to have fun with what can be a rote task at the start of the school year.
