This is a great paper to begin the year with, especially for middle schoolers. Students get to pick a topic that interests them (either something they explain how to do the activity or what the item/activity is). I have had students write the paper and include a video of "How to Operate a Tractor," another has written, "How to Properly Fold a Dress Shirt." Still, others explained "What a Rock Collection Is" or "What My Trophy Collection Is"...and so on. Included are the instructions, peer revising worksheet, grading rubric, and presentation schedule.
