300 Questions and Images to Inspire Argument Writing. If you’ve taught argument writing with our resources in the past, you already know we ask a fresh question every day as part of our long-running Student Opinion series.
Teenagers around the world are invited to visit and post their thoughts on topics including politics, medical ethics, fashion, sports and entertainment. We’ve rounded up lists of these prompts in the past, but this year we’re doing something new: Below you can find a categorized collection of all our recent, relevant Student Opinion questions, but alongside them we’re also including related Picture Prompts. These short, image-based forums are accessible to learners of all ages, but still provide engaging jumping-off points to help students make and support claims. For instance, let’s say your class is interested in meme culture. A Student Opinion question asks, “Do Memes Make the Internet a Better Place?” So give your students both “voice and choice” by inviting them to find the questions and format that speak to them.

Lesson of the Day: Amanda Gorman and ‘The Hill We Climb’ As its name suggests, occasional poetry documents and reflects upon particular occasions, events both public and private, grand and less grand, from Tennyson’s “The Charge of the Light Brigade” to Frank O’Hara’s “The Day Lady Died” on the death of Billie Holiday.
Often occasional poems are commissioned and intended for a public reading. Through the ages, kings and queens have summoned poets to celebrate their triumphs. Since John F. Kennedy, most incoming Democratic presidents have invited poets to mark their accession to the highest office in the land. While presidents have typically taken a hands-off approach to the poem’s composition, President Kennedy asked Robert Frost specifically to read “The Gift Outright” at his inauguration and suggested a revision to the last line. In 2013, President Barack Obama asked Richard Blanco to be his inaugural poet. Fortunately, writing occasional poems is nothing new for Ms. The Hill We Climb. Amanda Gorman's Inauguration Poem Transcript, "The Hill We Climb" On January 20, 2021, Amanda Gorman became the youngest person to ever read at a presidential inauguration.
The 22-year-old poet laureate recited her poem, "The Hill We Climb" to a crowd that included President Joe Biden, First Lady Jill Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, her husband Douglas Emhoff, and Barack and Michelle Obama. And fun fact? The gold hoops and birdcage ring she wore during her big moment were a gift from Oprah herself. "I wanted it to be a message of hope and unity. And I think that [the inauguration] for me really just underscored how much that was needed," Gorman said on CBS This Morning ahead of her performance.
Below, a full transcript of Gorman's poem that has everyone talking. This content is imported from Twitter. Dr. When day comes, we ask ourselves, where can we find light in this never ending shade?
