These time-tested writing prompts are sure to get your middle school students writing! Each day, select a journal prompt that goes with your current area of study. There are 25 categories and 225 prompts from which to choose, truly providing enough variety to frame the writing prompts to your students.
Students use prompts containing inspiring quotes, relevant statistics, poetry, well-known dates, and many other attention-getting materials. This provides opportunity to write about personal interests and experiences targeting specific reading, writing, and grammar skills. Extension ideas and a suggested grading rubric are also included to save teacher time.
This quick-write method gets even my most reluctant writers writing, as it is quick. After just a couple of weeks, my students beg to write longer! I hope your students love it as much as mine!
