The writing activities I have created are designed to help students get started on a specific topic. Beginning sentences are provided as an incentive to create original openings to the discussion of the topics. The writing activities were created to give students opportunities to write about their feelings, thoughts, and opinions. I have chosen just a few pages from an entire booklet that contains fifty writing activities.
The topics in this series of writing activities have stood the test of time and many students. They reflect certain issues that are universal among middle school students. Directions are included for the teacher to use.
