Last week I published a video about creating writing prompts with Spinner Wheel. Terry Freedman took that idea and ran with it to start the week on his Eclecticism Substack. In Terry’s latest article he shared the Spinner Wheel of writing prompts that he created. Additionally, he shared his article planner. 

Terry Freedman’s article planner is available to use in Google Sheets and in Excel format. The planner has two purposes. The first purpose is keeping track of the progress you’re making toward publishing a finished version of any article that you’re writing. The second purpose is to generate writing prompts. 

As you can see in the screenshot below, you can use Terry’s article planner to assign writing prompts to students. In one column you can have names, in another writing prompts, and genres in a third column. Use the drop-down menus to assign the prompts to students.
