Writing Prompts for Hatchet This booklet contains over 40 prompts based on the award-winning novel Hatchet. Here are two of the many writing ideas you’ll find in Writing Prompts for Hatchet:
*Brian flies over the wilderness for hours before the crash, but we aren’t told much about how he passes the time. Flesh out this part of the story.
*Like most kids, Brian has no survival training. Should basic survival and emergency skills be taught in school? Why or why not? Write a letter to your school board or town government, arguing for or against adding survival training to the course requirements for your grade.
Use the prompts for daily journaling, longer writing assignments, collaborative writing, and short-answer or essay test questions. Many writing topics can also be adapted as discussion questions. However you choose to use them, they’re sure to help readers get the most out of their exploration of Hatchet.
Prompts are arranged in chronological order for easy reference and aligned to Common Core State Standards for writing (CCSS). With something for every writer, this booklet is an ideal resource for homeschoolers and classroom teachers.
