This zip folder contains two files- instructions for the "I Wish People Knew About Me" project and a graphic organizer used to start the assignment. Students will write a personal monologue as themselves and perform it for the class. The prompt is fairly open, with the intent to craft a monologue that reveals character. The graphic organizer includes prompts for brainstorming topics.

This lesson has a variable length. The writing portion will take a few days in class, but rehearsal for performance may take more or less time depending on the experience of your students. Be prepared for some heavy pieces. Monologues presented in my class have ranged from hilarious accidents to tragic stories of abuse. This project is a great way to connect with your students and get to know them better.
