What Can I Write About? 7000 Topics for High School Students.
More than 7,000 answers to the question "What can I write about?" are offered in this collection of writing topics for high school students. The topics are categorized in 12 sections: (1) description, (2) comparison and contrast, (3) process, (4) narrative writing, (5) classification and division, (6) cause and effect, (7) exposition, (8) argumentation, (9) definition, (10) research and report, (11) creative writing, and (12) critical writing (common themes in literature for critical analysis). Notes heading each of these 12 sections briefly define the different kinds of writing and indicate how the book may be used to locate topics suited to them, leaving little need for formal classroom instruction.
