Detroit’s Inside Out Literary Arts Project has created IO At Home for the families and teachers who are sheltering in place. This collection of writing prompts are specially designed to “enliven the at home experience.” Projects are divided by audience– you can find lessons for elementary, middle, and high school students, as well as ones for City Wide Poets, the Detroit youth slam team. One favorite is called Bad Birds, riffing off poems by Jamaal May and Mary Oliver. This is an amazing free resource from a founding WITS Alliance member organization.
