Creative Writing Prompts PowerPoint

Overall rating 4 out of 54.4 (35 ratings)

Last updated December 14 2014 , created August 23 2008 , viewed 89,135

PowerPoint to stimulate short, 10-minute creative writing tasks for 6th to 8th gradeers. Students express their ideas free from the burden of long, seemingly endless tasks. Develop momentum weekly – with reluctant students enjoying it by the end. Extendable into longer writing tasks; or use for drama-based activities.

I like the inventiveness of these. I have some problems with it. How can thr six different sets of tasks be organized soI could cut and laminate them for durability?

Great ideas but the PowerPoint is filled with spelling and grammatical errors.
