PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I had this idea to create the best journal/writing prompts ever (!) months ago, and it’s been a slow but rewarding process, and now they’re done. I really think you’ll find these prompts more thought-provoking, more mature, and more rigorous for your HS students.

This is a progressive pack -- it is designed for you to start with in the beginning of the year, and use one page a week. There are more student pages than in the school year, so you have a little flexibility....

An emphasis is placed on sentences, paragraphs, or the complete essay. There are three types of prompts included: Persuasive, Expository, and Personal (narrative). That way, you can use whichever focus is more relevant to your students. You can use the same prompt for everyone in the class, or choose a few and give them some variety. You may have a student who still really needs to work on solid paragraph structure, and can use these as scaffolded practice. Or, you could use one a week for the school year! It’s up to you!

I tried to make this is as easy as possible for you, so each prompt is on it’s own lined page…just print and copy for your kids! There is also a student handout with tips for each: writing sentences, paragraphs, and essays, and a pre-writing handout for paragraphs and essays where students can do a little planning before writing.

I've included the following:

Writing Sentences -- 9
Writing Paragraphs -- 18
Writing Essays -- 15

Among those, there are prompts that are definitely varied in topic and approach. You will find anything from writing about a negative person, proper manners, superstitions, conflict in values, movie vs. book, advertisements, to describing something as simple as sharpening a pencil. I hope you enjoy using these. I can't wait to use them this year in my classroom!

Best,
Teacher in the Rye
