I am an ES SLMC but could see this being modified to use with 4th or 5th grade.

*Partial integration of one or more literacy strategies by the writing components. Students would have had to do some research to know about their subject.

*Collaboration between SLMC and teacher can be added.

*Strengths: Student centered-the idea of creating an influencer persona is definitely based on student interest. Another strength is that this allows for creative thinking.

*Opportunities: Rubric needs work. Not sure how students would actually be scored. Would also like students to have option to create this digitally.
