Writing Prompt Examples

Below are eight writing prompts from Information and Data Literacy courses the GEC believes represent strong models to follow addressing general education SLOs and process writing embedded in a course. They represent a range of writing genres and lengths - including discussion posts, evaluating academic sources, reaction papers, term papers, and a portfolio with reflection component.
