High School Writing Prompts

high school writing prompts

I am currently working on creating Ashley's 9th grade curriculum, and I realized that I don't have any ideas for her journal entries...sometimes she has a hard time deciding what to write about. Therefore, I've been looking for English writing prompts for her journal writing, and I found some great ones to use that I wanted to share. I was surprised when I found ones that I can use for some paper assignments too!

Write On Writing Prompts

I really like this site for high school writing prompts. Write On has an entire list of different types of writing prompts, although the link that led to the high school specific writing prompts is broken. I think a lot of the other ones could still be used for some high schoolers.

There aren't too many listed on there right now, so I don't have a full year's worth from this site, but there are several that I can use.
