As ninth and tenth graders begin to study the more complex aspects of writing, it's important to remember to work on creativity and imagination as well. The Writing Prompts Workbook
is a collection of imaginative situations and questions that will get your students and children to come up with wildly creative ideas to give their brains a break from their more formal writing assignments. Bryan Cohen, the author of 1,000 Creative Writing Prompts
and 500 Writing Prompts for Kids
, has compiled 200 of some of his best prompts for ninth and tenth graders in this workbook. Use them for journals, assignments, poems, conversations, songs and more.
Examples from the book:

56. After winning a contest, you have the opportunity to meet your hero. The only issue is, this hero is nothing like the person you thought you were meeting. Describe the encounter from beginning to end. Is this person still your hero afterward?
