This bundle of writing topics for teens includes 50 different engaging writing prompts for your students! Each handout includes two options from which your students can choose to respond (so you get 25 handouts, that each have 2 options on them). But these aren't you're average writing prompts: they actually allow your student to focus on their writing craft by instructing them about how to use one grammar concept in each response (see the preview for more details).

Each handout focuses on a different type of grammatical concept

  • Parts of speech include well-placed adjectives, adverbs, strong nouns, vivid verbs
  • Verbals and phrases include appositives, appositive phrases, gerunds, gerund phrases, participles, participial phrases, and infinitives and infinitive phrases.
  • Independent and subordinate clauses
  • Sentence types such as simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex

Each quick write prompt handout has two different prompt options allowing for student choice. All prompts are engaging! Do the entire set for a fully scaffolded experience that will help your students become more fluent writers!

These are quick writes that are not simply free writes. They build skills while allowing students to write about engaging topics.

When you purchase this product you'll receive a file with a printable version as well as a file with a digital version if you or your students are practicing remote learning.
