Writing Prompts

Some writing prompts are provided to help students think of stories. For some students who are more independent, there are open-ended writing frames that allow for more freedom. There is a nonfiction and a fiction writing frame for the planning of stories which could then be written on other paper.

Some students may wish to writing nonfiction, so a writing frame page for big ideas and supporting facts is included.

There is a fiction writing frame somebody-wanted-but-then open-ended writing page, also.

The rubric will work for the different approaches to writing that the students may use.

For the pages with color images (very few) just print in grayscale if color printing is not available. Usually coloring printing is rarely available for student projects. A final revision might be written on a color printout page, perhaps.
