Today all junior students took a practice ACT. I only saw my 6th period class for about 15 minutes, during which we peer judged our science fair boards. Then I saw 8th period for a regular class period, during which students responded to one of the following three writing prompts:
1) What does it mean to live "a disciplined life?" Is it relevant in today's society?
2) Imagine your life when you are 30 years old. Where will you live? How will you provide for yourself? Will you have a family? Now think about what it will take to achieve that life. Write about the steps that you will need to take in order to achieve those goals.
3) What does it mean to have pride in your work? Describe a time that you had pride in your work. What did you do? How did it feel?
