One of the reasons I keep a blog is because I have a horrible memory. It’s nice to go back in time every once in awhile and look at the posts I wrote so I can rediscover some great resources. Luke Neff’s Writing Prompts site is one of those tools. I originally mentioned the site in 2011. Neff takes interesting images or quotes, and creates unusual, thought-provoking prompts for older students. I revisited the site yesterday, and found a prompt that really resonated. I want so much for my students to question and to use critical thinking skills. This prompt may activate some lively discussion in my class – which is what I am aiming for!

When I go to the link, it doesn’t load. The icon shows a broken link.
Unfortunately that may be due to network filters. The link does not work for me on campus, but does work at home.
What a great resource! I truly believe in teaching kiddos to be able to refute an argument in a civil way-something that I think is missing from our society today. I will be adapting some of these down for my kiddos. Thank you as always for sharing such a great resource!
