Self-Portrait Project

PowerPoint and rubric of a short project that went really with my middle school ESL class so I thought I’d share the idea with you. My students were able to come up with three products in one activity: a mind map, a self-portrait and an essay. The unit topic was about “Identity” or “Personality” but I guess this will work for general descriptive adjectives lesson as well.


  • To teach students about adjectives describing themselves

  • To encourage students to think about their talents, abilities and what they like about themselves

  • To help students write a short essay centered on the topic “Who Am I?”


  • A3 paper

  • coloring pens

  • notebook (for writing their draft)
