This is a writing prompt that will give your students an opportunity to talk about their experience during Hurricane Irma. This should help facilitate an efficient way to have a discussion that gives each student a chance to get their thoughts out. We should use discretion and decide if it is appropriate for students who experienced severe issues during that time. The rubric can be used to grade the paragraph and to revise and edit, then rewritten onto a separate sheet. Student volunteers can share after completion so that they have a way to express their feelings after the storm. Use of the scoring sheet should be optional but it can be used with other prompts.
