Writing prompts are one of those things that some writers love and others never touch.. They're often heralded as inspiration or creativity helps, but they can also distract us from the writing we're “supposed to” do.

Using Writing Prompts to Develop Student Writers

Writing is a complex task, and there may be students in the classroom who struggle with the process. For some students, conceiving and organizing ideas may be difficult, while for others, the challenge may be the writing process – converting their thoughts into words. Teachers can help students overcome these obstacles by encouraging students to write using writing prompts.

What are Writing Prompts?

Writing prompts are short texts, statements or images that help students kickstart their writing process and direct their writing in specific ways. Writing prompts are a useful strategy because they:

Encourage student creativity and increase interest in writing.

Offer students choices and opportunities to practice their writing skills.

Enable students to draw on and write using their own experiences and ideas.

Direct student writing (narrative, expository, or persuasive) and help students attain their writing goals.

Help students identify genres and explore different styles of writing.
