Product Description
I use this as the first writing assignment of the year with my creative writing students. It's a way for me to assess their writing for the first time while getting to know them at the same time. I read them the "My Name" chapter from "The House on Mango Street" in addition to my own name story that I wrote about myself. Then, they write theirs and some students share their stories with the class.
