Unit Writing Prompts

1. Have you ever owned something that you cared about? If so, describe it and write your feelings about it. Compare and contrast your feelings to the feelings that Cloyd seems to have about the bearstone.

2. As Cloyd stood at the peak of the Rio Grande Pyramid he wanted to tell Walter “that this was the heart of the mountain, up here in the light where you can see forever. Where you feel like you’re a part of it all, like the beating heart of the mountains is your own heart.

Have you ever felt that you were a part of it all? Write a narrative explaining where you were and why you felt that way.

3. Cloyd’s grandmother asked him if Walter “lived in a good way”. What do you think it means to live in a good way? Write a narrative and support your examples explaining what your feel this means, how you live it today, and how this might be lived in your future.
