Phobia Writing Prompts is a set of 32 Task Cards correlated to the theme of phobias. Students are asked to write a story where the main character has an intense fear of something such as lightning, crossing bridges, confined places, heights, or spiders.
Students are asked to think about how their main character got this fear, how it affects this person’s life, how he/she hides this fear from others, what happens because of having this phobia, and how the fear is finally conquered. A definition of phobias is included as well as a list of phobias and their definitions. (In some cases, there are several names for the same phobia. The most popular version has been used in this unit.)
Look what’s included in Phobia Writing Prompts:
• What Is a Phobia?
• a list of Phobia Definitions (for easy reference)
• a set of 32 full-color, ready-to-use Phobia Writing Prompts Task Cards – just what’s needed to get your students busy thinking, writing, and adding new words to their vocabulary.
