CLASSROOM – Writing Prompts
The week of February 16th, the classroom is challenging students with writing prompts, essays, and debates. We’ve created several, easy to use classroom worksheets using the National Days from the entire week. Added to that are some generic worksheets that will allow teachers to customize them for days throughout the year.
National days are fun, but in many ways, they are meant to educate us, too. Used as a tool, they send a message, raise awareness, or tell a story. In the classroom, the days can also be used to challenge our students or inspire them.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Download one or all of the worksheets and challenge your students to write about the National Days. We would love to hear their perspectives, too. You can write to us using our contact us link or by mail at

Of course, as always, sharing on social media isn’t required; learning is. But if you do, please use #NDCClassroom to share on social media.

We’ve created eight worksheets for creative writing, essays, and debate. The generic worksheets are customizable to fit other topics as well.
