This writing project is designed to help students create their own "Help Wanted" advertisement, posing as an employer looking for an employee. This activity can function as a stand-alone project, or as part of a larger unit about communities and careers.
The emphasis for this project is on creating a strong 5 sentence paragraph, including a topic sentence, three details, and a conclusion sentence. There are example sentences and sentence frames to support students in creating each of the five sentences. There is a final draft template for the students to piece together their final paragraph.
In my classroom, I have used this template to help students through the steps of the writing process to create a final product that meets the objectives of the project. I have found it to be especially helpful for struggling writers or English Language Learners. I hope you and your students will find it engaging and helpful, too!
