These No Prep Prompts are Ready to Print and Use! Use one, two or all three of these American Literature writing prompts as you teach William Bradford, Anne Bradstreet, and Jonathan Edwards. Students are asked to “Put yourself in the shoes” of Bradford’s Pilgrims, Bradstreet’s Puritan neighbors, and Edwards’ Puritan congregants, encouraging them to make a strong, personal connection with the texts they are reading. All three have been designed for use after students have read the text and may work well as a bell ringer on the day after reading as a launch into a discussion of the texts.
TIME-SAVING ANSWER KEYS INCLUDED!
Let’s hear it for answer keys! While you may wish to write your own response to share with your students, I’ve included three responses I wrote myself. I don’t know about you, but I always appreciate an answer key. If you choose to write your own response, use these writings as a model for your students or as a supplement to the lesson. No matter how you use them, they’re great to have!
