Journaling is a great way to get students writing about a topic, even U.S. government! The only issue is finding or creating journal prompts on U.S. government. This product solves that problem and includes 100 prompts on a range of topics in U.S. government, only .03 per prompt. It can be used at the middle or high school level, with students of any achievement level.
The prompts should be answered with a 3-5 sentence paragraph and the students should have ~5 minutes to respond to the prompt. I usually set aside 10 minutes after the students have responded for them to share or discuss their answers.
The prompt topics include:
Topic (# of prompts)
Elections and Voting (18)
The Executive Branch (10)
The Legislative Branch (10)
The Judicial Branch (5)
The Constitution and Personal Freedoms (12)
Business and the Economy (7)
Foreign Relations (10)
The Environment (5)
Democratic Values (7)
Health and Health Care (4)
