This is an essay assignment that is a creative writing assignment to accompany Le Petit Prince.
The first page outlines the requirements of the writing piece, and then there are questions and space designed to get the students to plan out their thoughts.
The second page is a rubric with 7 different categories : grammar, spelling, organization, content/creativity, use of appropriate tenses, sophistication, and length. (I include length because I teach in an IB school, and IB has writing length requirements.)
This could be used as a culminating project or as an assessment. Personally, I think the best results for creative pieces come when you allow kids to work on it either with partners (sink or swim together!) OR individually.
This is a fully-editable Word doc.
