Do you need a writing project for the crazy holiday season? This creative writing project allows writers to use their imagination to design their own holiday. Included is an outline for students to fill out that will thoroughly guide them in focusing their ideas prior to writing the rough draft. In addition, a grading rubric is included which can be used to guide students while doing their work.
I used this successfully in a low-level 7th grade classroom, including numerous special education students. It allows for easy differentiation and offers non-intrusive writing guidance for students with more needs in a regular education setting.
