This is an assignment I use to go along with my favorite quote at the beginning of the school year. "Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the STARS!"
Students have the opportunity to demonstrate themselves to me on a star (template is included). Each point represents a different topic including: hobbies, favorites, future, family and friends. Specifics about each along with a mini rubric for grading are included.
The directions are editable and you can modify as you see fit.
