This research paper entitled “All About Me” will require your students to find out information about the person they know the best… themselves! The information they gather will focus on the 9 months before they were born all the way up through their early childhood. And since they most likely will have very little knowledge of these years, they will need to practice their research skills – more specifically their interviewing skills.
Before beginning this project, you may want to introduce and practice interviewing – both of which can be accomplished with your purchase of this unit. In this file, you will receive two sets of interview questions along with directions and recommendations that have already been classroom-tested. You are also provided with instructions and guided practice on writing note-cards, writing paragraphs from a note-card, and also lead and closing sentence writing – all of which are requirements of this writing project. Feel free to use some or all of the files and adapt them to fit your own students’ needs as well as your own unique teaching style.
Please feel free to contact me with your comments or questions while you’re using or after you've finished the unit.
