As seventh and eighth graders begin to study the more complex aspects of writing, it's important to remember to work on creativity and imagination as well. The Writing Prompts Workbook is a collection of imaginative situations and questions that will get your students and children to come up with wildly creative ideas to give their brains a break from their more formal writing assignments. Bryan Cohen, the author of 1,000 Creative Writing Prompts and 500 Writing Prompts for Kids has compiled 200 of some of his best prompts for seventh and eighth graders in this workbook. Use them for journals, assignments, poems, conversations, songs and more! When the pages are filled, check out the the author's other workbooks for ninth and tenth grade and eleventh and twelfth grade. Workbooks are also available for first and second grade, third and fourth grade and fifth and sixth grade.
