These are not your average writing prompt. Each of the five back to school themed prompts provides your student a spark - the beginning of a story that they can continue. Self-differentiating and engaging, students can choose the story that they are most interested in and continue to develop the plot, setting, and characters. A great way for teachers to assess students' writing and for students to get back in the swing of writing. Also included is a checklist for success for students to use to improve their stories.
