Personal Statement & Hero's Journey Writing Assignment & Rubric--This personal statement assignment is based on the classical Hero's Journey. All students are on their own personal journey & the juniors and seniors are all working on personal statements, so I combined the two. This standards-based writing assignment includes two writing prompts, a scoring rubric, and a peer editing checklist. This assignment can be differentiated for several levels, and has beed used/modified successfully with freshman as a back to school writing assignment to assess writing abilities. Please note that this product is ONLY the writing assignment, rubric, & peer editing checklists--this is not a complete writing unit.
