    I, too, am a student. Here are my thoughts: Objectives: 1) To stimulate creativity with a defined space, which I find requires more critical thinking, as the range is limited. 2) As it is a group activity, it prepares students for group work. As a student, I am terrified of group projects, especially big ones (ones that extend through sessions). However, given that everyone in the group understood what it is to work as a group, those fears are but irrational. And isn t learning how to work as a group the first step to getting over that fear? 3) Allow students to build confidence in themselves and their work when they present their final product. Strengths & Weaknesses: Students can pool their creativity together, creating a fun experience. But be careful, as it may also mortify them for future team work, so you ll need a strategy to get around that and ensure that everyone makes an effort, and that everyone gets a chance to make an effort. Students may not like the music you ve selected for them, as I would imagine students in that age range are feel very strongly about their music association, but that is understandable, because you probably wouldn t want everyone in an 8th grade class listening to Eminem s Kim (youtube it). I don t think. Perhaps consider some other music suggested by students, given they re appropriate. Perhaps add Timeline, unless that is considered part of "Story type." It would probably help the students if you threw some possible genres up there so they d have an idea--drama, horror, etc. good luck :)

    I receive a newsletter from Education World and they have these very neat worksheets called "Writing Bug". Check them out: http://www.educationworld.com/a_lesson/archives/writing_bugs.shtml Some ideas they have include: Let It Snow! Describe snow to someone who has never seen snow. Going for the Goal Write about a specific goal you would like to achieve in the year ahead. An Interview With a President If you could interview any U.S. president, which one would you choose? Dear Veteran Write a letter to a veteran in your city or town who served in a war. Moving On Up! What advice would you give kids who soon will be starting the grade you are now completing? My Best Teacher Ever Before this year, which teacher was your favorite teacher? Write a short letter to that teacher.

Below are some descriptive, sequential, compare and contrast, cause and effect, and problem/solution writing prompts to help you give your students the practice they need.

    Thank you so much for this. I need to give my 8th-grader, reluctant writer, some options for what he writes as practice on spring break. This is a great list. I added one about describing the appeal of the YouTube videos he watches, and another about the cause-and-effect of DOnald Trump’s candidacy, since my son is very interested in Trump.

    Argumentative essays are also known as ‘position papers’ because of their justification of the side of the issue that they are written in support of. Generally, argumentative essays focus on topics that are prone to attract controversy, academic discourse and partisanship.

    Common argumentative essay topics include issues such as euthanasia, capital punishment, abortions and animal testing. An argumentative essay should not be a unilateral rant. It should address counter-arguments and should be able refute them with evidence in support of its message.

    Here is the best collection of sample essays I have come across. A kind teacher up in Oregon who is using Pattern Based Writing: Quick & Easy Essay sent me the links. She is thrilled that the number of her students scoring high on the Oregon State Writing Assessment has doubled since she began using the program.

    Below you will find excellent student writing samples for all of these grades: 3rd grade, 4th grade, 5th grade, 6th grade, 7th grade, 8th grade, and high school.
