This is a pack of 12 essay prompts to be used throughout the reading of The Westing Game. I require 3 paragraphs of my middle school students and we write one essay each week. Since I require 3 paragraphs, I include with my prompts paragraph starters or outlines to get them started.
The prompts require the students to show their understanding of the reading, connect some aspect of the story to their own life and make some sort of judgement.
Topics for The Westing Game essays include:
Writing Your Own Will
Angela vs Turtle
Angela’s Love Life
Private Eye Reports
Winning the Game
