Pick five of the prompts below, and type a full paragraph (at least five sentences) in response to each prompt. Go to Google Docs to type your responses. Use proper grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure. Don’t forget to paste each prompt into your Google Doc before you answer so that I’ll know which one you’re answering. Organize your thoughts by outlining your ideas before you begin constructing your official responses.


Remember the three key steps to constructing a response:

​1. Restate the topic or question

​2. Provide your answer(s)

​3. Use specific examples to support your answer(s)
