All They Need Is a Little Prompting

Every educator, including classroom teachers, homeschoolers, and parents who just want a little extra for their student needs an account with United Streaming for access to educational videos, audios clips, and images.

Recently I received and update from the folks at United Streaming to advise they have added more than 500 writing prompts based on NCTE (National Council of Teachers of English) standards.

All of the prompts are difficulty based from basic to more advanced. The prompts for grades 3-12 include descriptive, narrative, expository, and persuasive opportunities for students, and analysis prompts are included for grades 9-12.

Accompanying images that relate to content areas in literary and non-literary areas are also included.

To enter the writing prompt center log in to United Streaming and then look to the right under “Teacher Center” for the link.
