    Hi Team, to assist uploading the stimulus to Google Classroom for remote learning, could you please have JUST the prompts as individual PDFs? My students do not have access to printers so I want to avoid confusion and have one clean prompt page. I'll simply ask them to respond by formulating a persuasive essay in Google Docs. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

    Pay for it.

    Why does it say free to join but then in order to download the resources that I want I have to pay a subscription? Not happy.

    This says ‘7 pages’ on the main page, then when you click on the link it says 5 pages, but then when you download it, it’s actually 15 pages? Is it possible to offer a version with just the 5 prompt pages (and no worksheets)? Thanks! :)

      Hi Erin, I have updated the page count to 15, thanks for pointing this out. As far as printing just the prompts, you can choose to print off only those pages in your printer dialogue. Where it asks for the pages to print, just type in 1,4,7,10,13 and only those five prompts will be printed. If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don't hesitate to contact me.
