Themed Journal Topics for Teens (Weekly Packet)
Help teens explore writing and incorporate it into part of their weekly routine. The packet includes one creative themed prompt for each day of the week - Monday through Friday. Each handout is in full-color and consists of a meaningful picture to go with the day's theme and provide focus, clear directions, lines for drafting and an inspiring quote relatable to the prompt.

There are many ways to use this packet.
1. I post each handout on my classroom "Journal Wall" near the students' journals for focus and motivation.

2. For resistant writers who lack motivation or require extra support, these handouts can be given out as a weekly packet for extra credit.

3. If doing a 4-6 week creative writing unit, make these packets part of the students' homework grade.

4. Require students to write a daily journal for the entire year and have the students bind the pages into a creative writing book as a project grade at the end of the year. This will build confidence and develop a sense of pride within the students for their writing, as this will become their first book!

This packet is extremely meaningful and well worth investing in!
