Teachers and students love the writing prompts and quick writes included in the new Writing About Literature and Our Lives series. Created by a teacher who has taught 2-12 and college, these prompts may serve as a first sponge activity when a student walks in the classroom. The teacher could also read aloud the prompt and engage students with writing ideas and instruction. The basis of the Writing About Literature and Our Lives is that the writing prompts cover writing genres from persuasive essays to business letters and autobiographical narrative. Also included in the series, which may be purchased in sets of three, are formal essays and research projects. Encourage our students to enjoy writing and learn the writing genres at the same time. All writing activities offered meet California State Writing Standards and have been classroom tested for over 20 years.
