PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

SOCIAL ISSUES: Bullying, Poverty, Homelessness, Substance Abuse

WRITING PROMPT ABOUT SOCIAL ISSUES

Talking and writing about topics such as homelessness, bullying, poverty, and peer pressure are never easy. WRITING PROMPTS ABOUT SOCIAL ISSUES is a collection of photographs and writing prompts geared towards writing stories dealing with many important social issues facing our youth today.

In the first section, students are given a photograph and six writing prompts covering the following topics:
• homelessness
• bullying
• pollution
• substance abuse
• peer pressure

In the next section, there are five pages of photograph prompts. Included with the prompts are questions for students to think about correlated to the photograph to help get them started. The topics include:
• capital punishment
• world hunger
• materialism
• volunteering
• poverty

A WORD BOX is included for each writing prompt to introduce correlated and enriching vocabulary. The words vary in difficulty to challenge students at different ability levels. Encourage students to look up words they are not familiar with found in each Word Box.

Another feature of Writing Prompts About Social Issues is a collection of MIX AND MATCH TASK CARDS.
Each card has a word covering the following fiction-writing components:
• Main Character
• Time
• Setting
• Prompts
• Main Theme
• Conflict

Once the stories have been written, invite your students to share them orally with their classmates to satisfy the Core Curriculum Standards for speech.

PLUS THERE’S LOTS MORE!
You’ll also find:
• a definition of fiction and the important elements that comprise fiction
• a Student’s Guideline for Good Writing
• a Student’s Checklist for Writing
• a Teacher’s Grading Rubric
• Ten Terrific Tips for Delivering a Speech
• a Teacher’s Grading Rubric for Speech Delivery
