Some students just don't want to share intimate details about their thoughts, feelings and lives--at least, not with others in a class or group. That's where Unjournaling comes in. All the writing prompts in this book are entirely impersonal but completely engaging for both kids and adults.
Two examples of the 200 writing prompts include:
Write a paragraph about a girl named Dot, but use no letters with a dot (in other words, no i or j). Why on earth would Yankee Doodle stick a feather in his cap and call it "macaroni"? Come up with a plausible explanation.
The book includes sample responses to all of the questions--a helpful tool for anyone who gets stuck with a topic and wants to see how it can be done!
