Product Description
Want your students to have fun and improve their skills by writing about literature in new and creative ways?

9th grade is a transition year for sure—students are getting ready for more serious work of the later high school years, but they are also not quite ready to let go of the fun of the younger grades. It’s important to maintain their enthusiasm while pushing them to grow. Getting your students to experiment with creative writing is a great way to empower them to stretch their critical thinking muscles and try new things.

When you teach with these fun creative writing prompts, you will:

• get your students thinking about literature in new ways

• enjoy watching your students get excited about writing, and actually look forward to the next assignment

• have plenty of ideas for class time when you want to take a break and let students write quietly for a few minutes

• get your students experimenting with literary elements such as tone, theme, and point of view

• bring your classes’ understanding of literature to the next level

• teach your students about the qualities of good writing without any boring lectures

• see notable improvements in your students’ writing when they go out of their comfort zones to try something new

• have fun grading alternative assessments when you just can’t grade another test or boring essay

get to know your students on a new level when you read their creative work

• use rubrics for easy, quick, and efficient grading

Fun Creative Writing Assignment for The Iliad or The Odyssey
This assignment is a big hit with students.

A great alternative to a test or quiz on epic poems, this assignment is also my favorite assignment to grade each year.
