These brief writing assignments encourage you to apply what you learn on the pages of Writer's Help 2.0 to your own writing. The prompts are correlated with the content for that topic. To complete Writing prompts assignments, please follow the steps shown below.

From the home page

Click the Assignments tab.

Click on the title or the arrow next to the Assignment unit which contains the Writing Prompts you wish to work on. In this case, we will click on Writing Prompts: Composing and revising to open it.

Click on the link you wish to work on. It will open up in a new page.


To complete the Writing Prompts:

  1. Read the introduction.
  2. Use the spaces given to write your interpretation as prompted by each text box. The text boxes may be enlarged by grabbing the lower right corner of the box and dragging it out.
  3. When you are satisfied with your answer, click Submit.

    Note: Once you Submit an answer, it cannot be changed. A completed Writing Prompts assignment cannot be retaken.

  4. Your Writing Prompt assignment is provisionally accepted when submitted. Once your instructor has evaluated it, it will be graded and will record to your Gradebook.
  5. You can navigate to another page, or log out and back in again. You will be able to answer any remaining Writing Prompts when you return.

To get to the next page or prompt, click Next. Click Previous to get back to the previous page.

You must answer all of the Writing prompts and Submit them all to complete your assignment. If you do not Submit and complete all of the prompts, you will get a zero for a grade. Your score will not show at the top of the page or report to Gradebook until all the prompts are answered.
