An End of Year Writing Assignment

I found as a teacher that the last weeks before summer vacation were the most fun because much of the stress of getting everything taught was over,  but it was hard to come up with new topics for writing  that my students would enjoy.  One way that I would do that was to have my students pick their absolute favorite writing assignment of the year and add to it, elaborate more, and make improvements.  It was exciting for me  to see the changes from the first paper to the second one, and it was especially fun for my students because they got to pick an assignment they had already done and enjoyed, to work on.  I encourage you to give it a try and let me know how it goes.

  1. Hi,
    I am impressed with your idea; encouraging students to write by making amendments to their previous work. It will not only help in evaluating subject material of their interest, but also, will help in learning how to correct mistakes.
