A timed writing prompt on the theme of prejudice for the novel The Wednesday Wars by Gary D. Schmidt. This single page is all you need to give your kids and off they go! The handout includes a detailed prompt with context from the novel and several guiding questions to ensure the students have many ideas to write about. Students are encouraged to use support from the novel as well as their personal experiences and observations. Some higher level language is used so I recommend 7th-9th grade as a stand-alone activity, or a small group collaborative essay for the lower grade levels.
