Thomas Edison – Inspirational Quote Writing Prompts and Graphic Organizers
Please see the preview for the BUNDLE that includes this product.
Are you a multitasker? If so, you’ll understand why I use these science, character education, figurative language and writing lessons, all wrapped in one!
Edison Quotes included
• I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that didn’t work.
• Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.
Each prompt includes:
1. Full color poster
2. Grayscale poster
3. Print friendly version
4. Journal Size Posters
5. Prewrite graphic organizer
6. Organizer with sentence level cues
7. Quote with writing space
8. Guided 5 paragraph response
1. Class Discussion - Place the full page poster on chart paper and conduct a class discussion prior to writing.
2. Post-it Ideas - Use 3 colors of post-it notes for students interacting with the three questions found in the graphic organizer.
3. Large Poster - Later, I usually choose 3-4 of the post-its in each category to make a whole-class poster, including the student’s name who suggested the idea. This makes a nice centerpiece on a bulletin board for their final writing.
4. Writing About Character Quotes - Three levels of difficulty are included – 1. With graphic organizer and sentence frame support. 2. With graphic organizer, but without supports. 3. No supports and room to illustrate a personal connection.
5. Mini Posters - Print the poster size multiple times on one page. The small posters are great for interactive notebooks. Students make a web of ideas coming from the mini-poster; use it for the rough draft; or have students make their own ways to interact with the quote.
Updated Nov. 2016 – Quotes- full color posters added, journal size print friendly; extended writing for 5 paragraph response (changed from 18 to 35 pages)
