Quills and Thrills Week Fourteen

Happy Tuesday, Quillers and Thrillers!

If you are new to Quills and Thrills this week, you need to turn in your Ten Commandments of Digital Citizenship pledge and signed permission form before you can publish anything online on behalf of the club.

Don’t have the Ten Commandments of Digital Citizenship permission form signed yet? No worries, you can still create the tools needed to build your only presence and set them aside until you get the permission form signed.

Do your parents prefer that you refrain from publishing your writing online? No problem! You can still participate in the writing prompts and keep a journal!

Figurative Language Throw Down Challenge

Your challenge for this week is below. Be sure to tweet your response using#QuillsandThrillsFLTD. Like or retweet your favorite submission(s) to vote! But remember, it is tacky to like your own posts on social media, so do not vote for yourself. Is this your first challenge? Read the rules before you submit your response!

New Experience: Hero Discussion

Today we’re going to discuss why we choose what our hero and villains are in this world. To prepare for our discussion, you need to three adults in the school (not including us) about who their personal heroes and villains are and why. You’ll have 20 minutes to complete this. Once you’re finished, come back to the classroom and we’ll have a round-table discussion about the info you gathered.

The Prompt: Villains and Heroes

Write a story with about a character with a personal hero or villain. Make sure your story is engaging by using imagery, suspense, dialogue, and action to show the reader why a character is a hero or villain. Remember, good description gives great visuals and allows the reader to understand the purpose of the writing.

That’s All, Folks!
