Here's some ideas!

The author Barry Lane is an excellent resource. He has written some books for teachers that I utilize throughout the year. I especially like his book about persuasive writing, Why We Must Run With Scissors. and writing fix . com are both sites that I use.

My daughter wrote her autobiography in 8th grade. Her starting point was from an earlier project that was a creation of 50 memories. Each memory had to be one paragraph, include an illustration, and had to include one form of figurative language.

Students could create jingles for an advertisement, a brochure for a national park, or write an interview with a historical figure that is filled with factual dialogue.

Teach compare contrast with point/counterpoint poems and diamante poems that crossover into their science or history or compare characters from stories in LA. (Include sketches)

Hope this helps.
