Need some end of the year ideas for subbing freshman English

It is my second time subbing HS and the last week of school. They have 75 minute periods here. What are some writing assignments I can have them do if the teacher does not leave enough work or no work? I subbed a middle school on Friday and the teacher left no work for about half of the class. They refused to do anything I suggested and sat there for most of the day. So I'd like to have some ideas if there is nothing left.

Thanks a bunch. I'm a littler nervous to sub HS at the end of the year.

Writing prompts are always good to have on hand -

You can put up several adages and ask them to pick one and either agree or disagree with it, using examples from their own life.

Some other good questions are:

What would you do with $1,000,000?

What's on your iPod that I wouldn't expect, and why?

If you were starting high school all over again, what would you do differently?


I tend to work with younger kids, so I don't know if games would go over with your bunch or not. If you think it would, categories is great - no equipment but paper and pencils, and they get to talk. Team them off into small groups, and have each team come up with something that fits the category you give (animals, food, countries...) starting with each letter of the alphabet. The team that comes up with the most non-duplicated answers wins.
