Welcome to a new year, everyone! Even though we’re halfway through the school year, I thought it would be best to highlight some handy tips on staying organized during the remainder of the year.
If you have been participating in our daily writing challenge for the past 12 months, we would like to congratulate you! It’s not easy writing for 365 days in a row, but you persevered and triumphed over your goals. We are proud of you! You have proven to us that you are dedicated to being the best writer and creative thinker you can be.
Technology’s advancement has undoubtedly made many aspects of our lives simpler and more convenient. Today, it takes only seconds to greet a distant relative on social media, access valuable academic journals for a school assignment, and stay in the loop with what’s happening around the world. The internet has become a learner’s haven; however, it is important that we cautiously filter through the ideas that flow in abundance on our screens. For much of November’s daily writing prompts, we focus on media literacy and encourage you to reflect on how the media influences your daily choices and behaviors.
Two of our most favorite holidays happen in the month of October: Canadian Thanksgiving and Halloween. So in the spirit of these two special occasions, we’ve compiled a list of questions that will encourage you to think about all the things you are thankful for and all the things that go bump in the night. (Pssst! We love a good scary story, so please share yours in the comment section below!)
It is back to school season, which means that now is the perfect time to set your intentions for the upcoming school year. To help you overcome the many obstacles students face throughout the year, like difficult subjects and procrastination, September’s daily writing prompts encourage you to develop a strategy to ensure that you achieve all of your academic goals. Together, let’s make this your best school year yet!
Helping those in need and standing up for what you believe in are essential aspects of student life. In Ontario, and other provinces and territories across Canada, volunteering is mandatory for high school students. Not only does volunteering help you gain skills necessary for your professional journey, it also helps you see how valuable and needed your contributions are in your community. For August’s daily writing prompts, we urge you to reflect on how lending a helping hand and supporting those who give their time and effort for a good cause can greatly impact the world for the better.
