This slideshow contains 40 slides, each containing a quotation to give students something to think about, discuss, interpret, and analyze. These quotes can be used as journal prompts, free writes, or warm ups to allow students to make connections and use other higher order thinking skills to discuss quotes and prepare for a lesson.
With 40 quotes you can easily have your class respond to one a week throughout the entire year! My students enjoy the quote of the week, and we find ways to refer to it throughout the week and connect it to other parts of our lesson and school day.
The slideshow contains quotes from historical figures, athletes, well-known characters from movies, and other celebrities.
