Product Description
Need a New Year’s Eve activity that is easy to differentiate and accomplishes SEVERAL genres of writing?

This highly flexible, choice-oriented project gives students 40 prompts across 8 high-interest topics: Last Year, This Year, Midnight, Resolutions, Fitness, Around the World, January, and free choice.

Possible Uses for this project include:
• Mid-year benchmark assessment of student ability in each major genre
• Building up writing portfolios in several genres
• Homework for winter break
• Activities to use right AFTER break

Use the provided brainstorming page, rubric, and story starters to make this project easy to implement and assess; adjust the scope of the project to the length of time you need it to occupy. (I am suggesting up to 2 weeks, but it would be simple to lengthen or narrow the focus.)

This 5-page download includes:
Prompts: 2 pages of 40 prompts in 5 genres across 8 topics
Rubric: a Common Core-aligned rubric by genre (including grammar!)
Brainstorming: page of at-a-glance planning across genres
Story Starters: 28 story starters to help with the creative writing component (divided by topic)

CCSS Standards assessed include: W.1, W.2, W.3, W.7, L.2, L.4

*Wait!* This item is INCLUDED in my Writing Prompts for Teens Bundle: a YEAR of Choice Menus! Check it out to save 50%!
