Understanding Middle School Writing Prompts

Starting to compose an essay is easier only if you have a certain direction for writing. That is why teachers will have to provide middle school writing prompts to let the students gain a starting point for their essay writing. A writing prompt is like a type of a question that you need to respond to. Your response then is converted into a written form as an essay.

You can actually write different types of essays depending on the prompt that was delegated to you. In such a case, you can write a response in a form of an informative essay. In any case, you should be able to understand what the prompt asks you in order to come up with a relevant essay response.

Let me give you some middle school writing prompts so you can better understand what they really are.

  1. What is your opinion about the government’s stimulus package for bankrupt companies?
  2. If you are a flying bird, what places will you visit?
  3. Relate your personal experiences to the personal experiences of Mother Theresa of Calcutta.
  4. Are you for or against death penalty? Defend your answer.
  5. What was your reaction to Michael Jackson’s death?

Middle school writing prompts help you have a sense of purpose in writing about a topic. In order to have a quality essay out of prompt, make sure that you can actually understand the question to better prepare for it.
