Prompt #11

School’s out for summer! But summer’s almost over. Sorry. It’s true. Many of our readers and writers are heading back to class in the coming weeks. So….


Write a piece about something that you can only learn outside a classroom setting. Forget Math, Science, History, and English—what are some subjects that aren’t taught in school, but that you think make important lessons? Your flash piece might be a lecture on one of those subjects. Or it might be a piece about one character learning from another. Or maybe it will be a piece about someone trying to convince the school board that this new fabulous subject should be taught in school. Whatever it is, make sure to put in some great details, and don’t forget to read over and revise your work!
