This writing project requires students to write a letter to their future self and promotes a growth mindset regarding their high school experience. The packet has a checklist for project completion, breaks down each paragraph with questions for brainstorming and prewriting, and includes a rubric for grading. Working through the project requires students to reflect on who they are currently as a student, how they envision their high school experience, and give themselves some encouraging words about achieving their long term goal-graduation. This is a great project for the first writing assignment for students in their freshman or sophomore year. I normally save the letters and send them to students their senior year. Could easily be adapted for middle school or college students.
