" . . . well meaning teachers hope students will get better at prompt writing by simply writing to a different prompt every day.  In writing workshop, teaching should focus on good writing in any genre.  The challenge is to teach writing well, and then teach children to transfer that learning."

Janet Angelillo, Writing to the Prompt


"Let's teach writing to prompts out of love, not out of duty.  Let's teach them to love the play of writing to prompts as much as they love gaming.  Let's teach it because we love writing.  Let's teach it because we love them."

Janet Angelillo, Writing to the Prompt
