My Hero Essay Criteria

A great activity for the beginning of the year, or for introducing an informative writing unit. Middle schoolers reflect on their role models or heroes, and write a five-paragraph essay about their personality traits and life events. You could connect the activity to a literature unit on heroes as well. The worksheet is a little simplistic and could use a more thorough rubric, but it's a good start.
