This was my favorite writing project that I did this past year! In this packet are the writing prompts that assist students in organizing their ideas before they start their rough drafts. What I did was have my students fill out the organizer and write a rough draft in the same period. The following day, students would switch papers and peer edit before writing their final draft. Depending on your students or the length of your periods, this might last 3 days for each writing assignment. I did a different assignment each week. I kept all the final drafts myself since this was stretched out over 2 months so that students wouldn’t lose their papers. The prompts included in this packet are:
- Table of Contents
- Vital Statistics
- If I Could Change
-Interview Questions for Letter to a Classmate
-Likes and Dislikes
This would also be a fun project to spread out over the whole year! Have students do one writing prompt a month for their "Magnificent Me" books and then by the end of the year they will be done!
