Product Description
A collection of 30 Journal Writing Prompts.

Journal writing is one of our very favorite aspects of teaching.

There are so many benefits:

Conducted at the beginning of class daily (or on certain days), it establishes a routinely procedure.

Regular writing improves writing skills, stimulates vocabulary.

Teenagers are in a constant self-discovery mode. Journaling allows them to unearth their truths, their authentic selves.

These prompts provide a variety of topics, both personal, trivial, and thought-provoking. Once a month students can choose one to expand upon, polish, or research further.

Writing can be a fantastic, safe outlet when students of all ages are troubled, confused, angry, etc. Journaling in class can be the gateway to becoming a lifelong writer.

The BEST part: Reading and responding to their journals builds a wonderful student-teacher bond. They often divulge more information in writing than they would in a face-to-face interaction. Over the course of a year, you really get to know them, and, in turn, they learn their voice is heard, valued. There is much joy in connecting with students, and they develop trust knowing their information remains confidential. They should be reminded, however, that teachers are mandated reporters, and have to respond appropriately if necessary.
