Writing Prompt: Missing Homework
Of course, we are not condoning missing your homework or lying to your teacher. But once in a blue moon, things can happen that prevent you from doing your homework. Maybe a fire-breathing dragon set your essay on fire. But why would she do that? Maybe, right as you sat down to do your math problems, the goblin king needed you to help save his kingdom.
This prompt tests the writer’s imaginative skill, as they are asked to play around with the age-old scenario of needing to pull a fast one over on a teacher, and come up with something truly outrageous that, yes, justifies even playing homework hooky. Have fun with this!
