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!

A Breath of Fresh Air!
Quality writing instruction is essential for all students, yet it is often a source of frustration and angst for teachers and students.  If you find that your students cannot respond to introspective, run-of-the-mill journal prompts, this will restore your faith in the power of writing.  It truly is a breath of fresh air!  The prompts in Unjournaling are fantastic conversation starters, and can be used in a whole-group setting, or assigned to students as an individual activity.  I am confident you will be as pleased as I am with the purchase of this book.  I love it!
