T Shirt Writing Assignment

Persuasive Writing - T Shirt Design
This week's writing assignment is a persuasive piece. Students are to design a t shirt that represents our 8th grade class. After designing their shirt, students will write a 30 second commercial selling their shirt. The commercial must contain all of the dress ups and sentence openers.

Due Date – Monday, September 25th, 2017

Required Materials - Students may use their own filming equipment if they would prefer, or we will film in class on Thursday, September 21st, 2017. The finished project must be a wmv or mp4.

Expected Time Requirement - 1 - 2 hours including t shirt design, KWO, rough draft, final draft, and filming. Writing should explain your design and convince people to buy it.

The final products will be shared in class to help decide the winner of the official 8th grade shirt. 

Ways for parents to be involved:
  • Please ask them about their design. "How does your design represent your class? How did you come up with your ideas? What color do you think this would look good in?" 
  • Offer to help with filming. Parents make great camera operators, spokesmodels, or props. Post editing (if any) should be left to the student.
  •  Review the final product and laugh with your student.
