Making a list of Writing Prompts for High School Students is easy for me, I have taught high school students for around 15 years. Well, it’s easy today when I’m out of the fog of teaching. Sometimes I can’t think of a single one of these. These are writing prompts that I have found high school students love to write about. They are my favorite prompts, and I use them all the time. For high school students I have found they tend to life short prompts that inspire the imagination a lot. More than any other audience they do not like to pulled by the nose. They want to think for themselves, but they also like things that are familiar to them.
