2019-2020 Picture AND Argumentative Writing Prompts
Creative Writing Prompts for GRADES 3-6
Argumentative Writing Prompts for Grades 5 & 6
- Plan your argumentative piece out in advance. Remember a good argument has an introduction, reasons, and conclusion to make others want to agree with you. You should also respond to “counter arguments” (those who would oppose your stance) in your writing.
Prompt One (1)
Vandalism is becoming a problem in today’s society. Do you think teenagers who vandalize should pay fines or serve mandatory community service to help repair the damage? Write an essay to convince your reader of your position.
Prompt Three (3)
Are part-time jobs for high school students a good thing or do they hinder getting an education? Take a stand.
Prompt Two (2)
Schools do not offer all the elective courses that students would like to take. Think of an elective course you would like to take that your school does not offer at this time. Think of some reasons why you think this course should be offered. Now, write an essay to convince the administration at your school to offer the course of your choice.
Prompt Four (4)
Your Own Topic. Choose to write about something you feel strongly about.
