The African American or Black History Month themed essay writing bundle includes 12 different prompts. There are four prompts each for expository, persuasive and narrative essay writing. Depending on student's prior knowledge, some prompts may require additional research. In addition to the prompts, there are instructions on using it as a demand or timed writing prompt (great for use with a Substitute teacher) as well as a planned essay writing assignment using the writing process. Rubrics included.
This activity includes infinitely re-usable resources for both demand/ timed writing as well as the writing process. Students can walk through the steps of the process, including a peer review checklist that forces students to identify good and bad (rather than just writing "it's all good" as some of mine liked to do.)
The essay prompts are broad, allowing for a great deal of student choice and personalization.
