This product has two different but connecting assignments. The first is an Idea Journal for which students collect and write things that inspire them or will help with their writing (quotes, stories, word lists, magazine clippings, etc.). An evaluation rubric is included. The second product is an Idea Journal Inspired Writing Assignment in which students select items from the Idea Journals that they created to work into a writing assignment (story, essay, etc). An evaluation rubric is also included with this assignment. I created this assignment several years ago when I started teaching Creative Writing, and the students love it (as long as they start it before the due date, lol).
