One important key to being successful in life is taking initiative. This assignment asks students to teach their peers about something that means something to them. This three page document includes instructions, a brief 15 pt. rubric and a brainstorming sheet. A good introduction to the how-to essay or an expository essay, this allows students a low/no-risk writing assessment. The presentation can be used as an ice breaker to let students get to know something about their peers beyond the basic name, favorite food, etc. I found my kids loved getting the chance to write about something important to them!
