LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “First Day Writing Assignment”

LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “First Day Writing Assignment”

By Connie Casserly
Grades 6-12

“First Day Writing Assignment”
Since writing is an integral part of my teaching, I like to obtain an idea of each student's writing skills the very first day of school. Once we review the Syllabus for the class, I give students this assignment.

Not only does it help me to gauge how to focus the writing elements we will need to cover during the year, but it also serves as a smooth transition for the students from the summer break to the new school term.

I love how this assignment gets the students thinking in an analytic manner, as the ability use higher level thinking skills and writing are life-long partners.

Have a Fabulous 2014-2015 School Year!

Happy Teaching,
