Glossary of Education
- A prompt is a technique used in writing classes to stimulate students to write on a particular topic. A prompt can take many forms -- a picture, word, phrase, sentence, or paragraph -- and is intended as a launching point for a writing assignment. For example, students may be given "Your Hero" as a prompt to introduce a writing assignment where they will write about someone who they consider to be their heroes.
