High school students often need to be reminded that reading and writing isn’t always a chore. Creative writing time is a great way to remind your students that writing isn’t all academic language and five-paragraph essays. The following pages list various creative writing prompts that I have used in my classroom. You can either assign one to the whole class or allow each student to pick whichever prompt strikes them as interesting! This helps to develop students’ writing skills and style and boost their confidence!
