The Planning a Special Event- Project Based Learning (PBL) Writing and Media Packet is designed to provide students from grades 5-8 with engaging and practical opportunities to improve their thinking and writing skills while focusing on their own personal interests and hobbies. Students will be planning an imaginary special event that will require them to complete the following activities:
- News Article
- Business Letter
- Budget Organization and Reflection
- Advertisement or Invitation
This project based learning packet can be easily used as individual parts or as a whole unit. Writing templates will assist students who need extra support with organizing their thoughts and ideas and will provide opportunities for teacher feedback along the way. Marking guides will allow teachers to easily assess final products. All students will have several opportunities to be reflective and creative, all while refining writing skills and having fun.
This packet was designed to meet Ontario Writing and Media Literacy curriculum expectations; however, it can easily be used in any grade 5-8 classroom.
