English 12 – Creative Writing Prompts (for portfolio)

The following five creative prompts are for your Term 3 writing portfolio. Work is meant to be completed on them in class; remember, they are working documents designed to demonstrate your process and progress so there is no need to produce a “good copy.” You can use prose, poetry or a combination of both to respond to the prompts.

Please ensure EACH prompt gets added individually to your Table of Contents.

Keep all drafting in your portfolio so it doesn’t go missing!

  • List twenty people you would be highly uncomfortable sitting next to on a plane. Offer 1-2 sentences as to why they would make you uncomfortable. These can be historical figures, characters from literature or film or people from your real life.
  • A) What is the best thing that happened to you today? B) This week? C)This year?
  • Does the future excite or frighten you? Why?
  • Were you ever someone’s second choice? When did you become aware of this?
  • Describe the last time you cried and why.

June 10, 2024 – Day 1

For students who ordered a year book, here is a message from Ms Wong regarding year book distribution happening on June 17th after school:

“Date: Monday June 17
Time: after school (please do not let your students out early)
Place: Covered Courtyard
      Entrance from the south side Rumble doors
      Exit from the North doors
If they don’t pick up on Monday after school, they will have to wait until Wednesday to pick up their yearbooks from me in B105- before class, break, lunch, after school times only.
If you can also explain to the kids to wait on Monday, it will be much faster than waiting until Wednesday to get their book. The line will be LONG, but it goes super-fast as I have 10 tables and 20 students, passing out books.  The kids will be let into the space in groups of 50-75, so it will go fast. Most kids will be through by 3:30pm with stragglers coming through by 3:45ish.
IF they think it will be faster to wait until Wednesday, it won’t be as there is only one of me sifting through A-Z, rather than my class looking through 2-3 alpha last names.”
