This cause and effect writing prompt is based on the reading of HOLES by Louis Sachar. The theme of the paper is "lying." Students are given three possible approaches to the topic to use in their writing to choose from. Each prompt is set up to guide students through writing the intro (in this case, that is done whole group), body, and conclusion of the paper. The four point grading rubric has catagories of organization, cause, effect, conclusion and mechanics. Also includes a graphic organizer for planning this piece of writing.
