Now this is a serious welding helmet. Problem is, it may taunt the Sparks God.

Monster Attack Bug welded by La Vergne Rosow
If this Monster Attack Bug were used as a writing prompt, would you give it a name or ask the writers to identify it?

Writing Prompts - Do they matter?

That was my comment about the prompt.
Sept. 25

I would ask each student to give me a name for the writing prompt, making it personal to them.

When students are assigned time to write, does it matter what they are told to write about or is just the act of writing sufficient use of school writing time?

When you leave a comment, please tell us who you are, too.
