An entire year of quickwriting has been planned for you! Not only will you have the first five to 20 minutes of class taken care of, you can also extend each mode of writing into a longer text by guiding students through the writing process. Students will build writing stamina and confidence throughout the year.
Help students build writing confidence and stamina in just 5-20 minutes per day
Narrative prompts designed to amplify student voice
Informative prompts written to encourage student inquisitiveness
Argumentative prompts with multiple-perspective nonfiction articles
Assign relevant, real-world writing prompts all year long
Digitally Accessible Daily Writing Prompts
You'll receive more than 180 days of quickwrites from which you can choose in several modes:
- Beginning of the term reflective writing prompts
- Argumentative writing prompts
- Includes 2-4 nonfiction texts you can print for the students to read and annotate or provide online through a system such as Google Classroom
- Creative writing prompts
- Informative/expository writing prompts
- Narrative writing prompts
- General reflective writing prompts
- End of the term reflective writing prompts
The teacher's guide includes instructions to help you prepare for class ahead of time, how to manage the quickwrites during class, including estimates of how much time each element will take. I recommend that you write with your students, and I include a recommended process for guiding students through the writing process as they extend a quickwrite of their choice into a longer text.
180+ Prompts And More!
I have included relevant activities and suggestions for each mode of writing based on my years of experience in the classroom and studies as part of my National Board for Professional Teaching Standards candidacy process, lessons developed as an Oklahoma Writing Project Teacher Consultant and student in the University of Oklahoma English Education master's degree program.
