Students get the opportunity to think about all of the things that they have to be thankful for, while working on their writing. This comes with an outline for students to use in the prewriting stage. Then, an example paper shows students how their paper should look, including indenting, topic sentences, details, etc. This assignment is set up where students can complete it independently, with very little instruction from the teacher. The packet also includes a rubric, so the students know the weight of each requirement.
