Get students excited about writing! Upper elementary and middle school students will love to respond to these thought-provoking quotes. You will love the no-prep materials and rubrics for your writing curriculum!
You get 50+ different quote-driven prompts in two different formats: a whole-page and a half-page.
Some of the authors include Confucius, Pablo Picasso, Sir Winston Churchill, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Jim Valvano, Helen, Keller, Albert Einstein, John F. Kennedy, Shakespeare, and Nelson Mandela. Subjects covered include Art, Attitude, Courage, Education, Friendship, Success, Sports, and Work.
These prompts can be used as low-stress, ungraded, true journal prompts, or they can be used and assessed as part of the writing process.
Each prompt asks for a two-part response. Students are asked to explain what they think the quote means, then to discuss whether or not they agree with it.
A choice of rubrics for teacher and student are included.
