The hardest part about getting students to write in a way that meets standards is dragging details out of them! This is designed to be a PowerPoint that you can project (or print as a flashcard type activity) and allow students time to write, then share as a class or evaluate their work after a period of time.
Instructions and modeling are included to guide students through how to respond. Since they have to pick one "would you rather," they will get practice taking a firm stance in response to a prompt and then providing details to back up their opinion! To quirky or weird prompts, students don't hesitate to give reasons - they automatically pick out the who/what/when/where/why details. Let them warm up with these and get confident in those skills before daunting writing prompts.
**This series of Would You Rather writing prompts has an Winter theme for seasonal-themed writing. Most are weather or trend related and I avoided mentioning any specific religious-related holidays, but of course use your discretion to best fit your class. There are thirty slides, so you still have plenty to choose from.
