1. Use only one each day as a writing prompt, possibly as a warm-up.
2. After students have answered the questions, choose or draw several to discuss as a class or allow them to share in small groups.
3. Partner “station” activity: Have students move (in partners) from one station/card to the next around the room answering each one (possibly with a limited amount of time at each station).
4. Exit slips: Give each student a card with the lines printed on the back. They should answer the question and hand you the card on the way out the door. Repeat this daily until all questions are answered. Alternatively, display the card on a screen and have students answer on a separate lined card or slip of notebook paper.
5. Extra credit, writing homework, in a writing center, or as early finisher work.
6. Use them as writing prompts that all students or tutoring groups will then edit for general or specific grammar and writing concepts you are currently addressing.
