PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Need a writing activity for older students that is unique, easy to differentiate, and accomplishes SEVERAL genres of writing?

This highly flexible, choice-oriented project gives students 40 prompts across 8 high-interest topics: summer reading, goals & plans, vacation, memorable moments, June, July, August, and free choice.

This project would be particularly beneficial for:
• Counting down until summer
• An end-of-year snapshot of growth
• Building up a writing portfolio
• Summer school writing

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
