SAMPLE BOOK PUNCH WRITING PROMPTS
Brian is constantly learning from the mistakes he makes while trying to survive in the wild. Think about a mistake you made in your life that taught you a valuable lesson or skill. Write a paragraph about a mistake you made and tell what you learned from the experience.
When Brian, the main character in Gary Paulsen's "Hatchet," finds himself stranded in the wilderness, he must find the strength and the tools he needs to adapt and survive. Write a multi-paragraph essay telling the most important things Brian does to adapt to his wilderness home. You must write a thesis statement that expresses this opinion, a body of two or three paragraphs to support your statement, and a conclusion paragraph that sums up this point of view.
