25 great, thought-provoking prompts for any 8th-12th grade English class. Mostly open ended journal-type response topics to generate quality writing. Two short stories are referenced specifically: "To Build A Fire," and "The Jilting of Granny Weatherall." Otherwise, all of the prompts are open ended and non-specific to a piece of literature. I typically use one per week during the semester. Great for journals, socratic method discussions, or to fill 10-20 minute gaps of time in your weekly lesson plans. Great conversation starters, also.
