Creative Writing Activity

Product Description

TOW (Thought of the Week) is a great way to get students started in the creative writing process. The teacher can use the writing prompts as a writing activity, a one-time evaluation, or as a semester-long evaluation.

Included is:
❒ 20 weeks of creative writing prompts (3 different choices per week)

❒ An instruction sheet for students

❒ An editable due date sheet (in PDF)

❒ Three editable evaluation sheets (work process, oral, and writing) in Word for

easy modifications.

I’ve used these prompts for years now, and every year I’m surprised at how much students enjoy this activity. I thought that it was time I shared.
