Every week my students are given a different writing prompt to do for homework. I gave this homework in 4 different parts over 4 nights. This one is about creative writing. This prompt is about what the students would do if they were a junior detective. They get to create and solve a mystery coming up with clues and suspects. There's even a part for them to decorate their own junior detective badge. The results should be a lot of fun! This project's focus is on complete sentences and details.
The Pen is Mightier, is all about creating a joy for writing as well as teaching students conventions and format.
