This article by Michael Gonchar published on The Learning Network via The New York Times will have you writing in no time. Not only are the prompts organized in a thoughtful way, but each prompt links to a separate article with detailed information and ideas.
“The categorized list below touches on everything from sports to travel, education, gender roles, video games, fashion, family, pop culture, social media and more, and, like all our Student Opinion questions, each links to a related Times article and includes a series of follow-up questions. What’s more, all these questions are still open for comment by any student 13 or older.”
You can also download a PDF of these 500 prompts.
