This download contains a complete unit for instruction of a profile of a person. With the goal of producing a positive, flattering portrayal of a high school staff member or an accomplished peer, these materials provide students with the structure and process by which to create a publishable document. The download includes a 2-page overview of the assignment itself, including the writing prompt, requirements for the profile, detailed writing process checklist for the 3-week unit, and point breakdown for the final draft; a 2-page handout regarding guidelines and suggestions for writing the profile, covering various approaches to the lead, inverted pyramid organization, use of direct quotations, proper attribution, verb tense, and perspective; a 2-page peer evaluation form for in-class assessment of preliminary drafts of the profile; and a 1-page evaluation form for summative assessment of the final draft of the profile. SEE THE FREE DOWNLOAD OF THE SECOND PAGE OF THE PEER EVALUATION FORM. Also check out my other materials for grammar and mechanics, literary units, and writing instruction.
