Product Description
This easy-to-follow handout has two on a page, making it easy to get enough copies to students. I have students glue it directly into their journals. Students are guided to think about their Thanksgiving and use imagery and figurative language to describe it. Students are also asked to write about conflict...yes, conflict...at Thanksgiving. But we all know that even the best holiday gathers bring a sense of pathos for those no longer at the table or the tension between family members. Maybe the writer becomes aware that he or she did not help with the holiday as much as he or she could. Whatever the case, we all know that great storytelling requires the element of conflict, and this journal prompt brings that out, without diminishing the beauty of the holiday. In fact, it brings it more meaning and more beauty.
