500 Prompts for Narrative and Personal Writing ~ NY Times Learning Network

500 Prompts for Narrative and Personal Writing ~ NY Times Learning Network | ELA | Scoop.it

by Michael Gonchar

 

"Every school day since 2009 we’ve asked students a question based on an article in The New York Times. Now, five years later, we’ve collected 500 of them that invite narrative and personal writing and pulled them all together in one place. Consider it a companion to the list of 200 argumentative writing prompts we posted earlier this year.

"The categorized list below touches on everything from sports to travel, education, gender roles, video games, fashion, family, pop culture, social media and more, and, like all our Student Opinion questions, each links to a related Times article and includes a series of follow-up questions. What’s more, all these questions are still open for comment by any student 13 or older."

"Like thinking, reading in the 21st century is different than in centuries past, endlessly linked in an increasingly visible web of physical and digital media forms.

So much to ponder here! Ignore Terry's advice about skipping to the bottom of the article for the strategies, and take the time to read the article itself.  And the strategies are great--what I'm thinking of when I envision Common Core-aligned assignments!
