Free Write Ideas


What can I write from my Free Writes?

Review your free-writing work.  Which one do you find the most interesting?  Use the following guides to revise your free-writing into a form to publish for others.  Change the names to preserve anonymity. Add details and specifics to clarify your ideas.  Organize the ideas logically in one of the formats suggested (letter, poem, pamphlet, magazine articles, news articles, science articles).




Which sport?

What do you like about the sport?

Of what you like, what is most important?

What is the most important skill needed to be successful?

  • Explain this skill to a younger student as a “How-To” pamphlet.


Favorite teams:

Which team in which sport?

What is it that makes the team your favorite?

Which player is the best, and why do you think so?
