So, in my English 12 class we have a student teacher finishing her practicum, and right now we are doing a unit on creative writing.

She assigned an activity that I thought would be a really good writing prompt.

She had a container of words that could be used to describe the tone of a story, and she had each student pull a word and use it in a story about taking the dog for a walk in the park.

So, I thought I would pass the activity onto you guys, and let you have fun with it. :)

WORDS:

crazy
boring
disconnected
funny
angry
serious
solemn
playful
annoyed
loving
indifferent
calm
cheerful
eccentric
hopeful
humorous
innocent
mischievous
sad
tense
tragic
urgent

Have fun!

When I finish mine, I'll post it. :)
