If your students need practice writing for specific purposes, tasks, and audiences, throw this ridiculously fun little product their way!
Students are transformed into the role of "publicist" to a famous singer, actor, athlete, politician, or author and must do damage control for a disaster scenario involving their client. I simply print the prompt pages and let students' imaginations do the rest of the work!
There are five writing options in this resource: newspaper article, series of tweets, letter, press conference statement, and email. Each prompt gives your writers a specific task and outlines the purpose and audience for which they must write.
Great for enrichment, reteaching, or as an emergency sub lesson.
