MIDDLE SCHOOL PROMPTS

t-shirt imageYou’ve seen your fair share of messages on t-shirts, and you’ve probably worn a few t-shirts with writing on them.

Sports teams, music groups, camps, and even hospitals put their messages or advertisements on t-shirts.

They are like wearable billboards, and everyone reads them as you walk by. What message do you want to tell people?

Now it’s your turn: You’ve been given a blank t-shirt. What will you put on it? What do you want people to know about? Use the front or the back or both.

Here’s this week’s high school prompt.

Teachers, be sure grab your FREE download of the first two chapters of Illuminating Literature: When Worlds Collide! Empower your teens for the rest of their reading lives!
