Description

Help students connect with literature with this set of bell-ringer writing prompts!

For each writing task, students are given a compelling quote and asked to explain the author’s message and the extent to which they agree or disagree with the idea. Then, they’ll support their position, providing reasons and examples from their own life experience, observations of others, or academic studies. The magic happens when students share their answers either in small group or full-class discussion. In that discussion, students will begin to see how the quote relates to many modern life situations.

There are several ways you might want to use these slides/handouts in your physical or digital classroom, including:

1. Use as a routine bellringer writing/discussion activity to begin class one day each week.

2. Use the writing prompts whenever a lesson wraps up more quickly than planned or to help fill an emergency sub plan.

3. Use thematically related prompts as a supplement to novel studies.

4. Use as timed writing practice.

This collection of 18 slide/handout sets includes words of wisdom from the following:

The Picture Of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling

The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henríquez
