Team

Even the most self-sufficient among us occasionally find themselves part of a team.

Ready to roll? All you need to do is…

  • Write a new post on your iblog in response to the prompt.

Need more ideas? Not sure what to write around team? We’re here to help:

  • Sports fan? Easy: tell us about your favorite team and what keeps you rooting for them through thick and thin.
  • Photographers, show us close-knit groups of objects, buildings, animals, or people.
  • From high school rock bands to dragon-boat racing, what has been your most rewarding (or, conversely, most painful) experience of belonging to a team?
  • What’s the most impressive example of teamwork you’ve ever witnessed, whether you were part of it or remained an observer?
  • You’re founding a new team of superheroes and can choose up to three other people (dead or alive, fictional or real) to join you. Who do you choose, and what superpowers are they bringing to the group?

New

With all due respect to old, borrowed, and blue things, today’s prompt is all about the refreshingly, excitingly new.

Ready to roll? All you need to do is…

  • Write a new post on your iBlog in response to the prompt.

Need more ideas? Not sure what to write around New? We’re here to help:

  • Tell us about a new skill, hobby, or activity you’ve become interested in recently.
  • Who’s your newest friend? Share the story of how you connected.
  • Spring is here (in the Northern Hemisphere, anyway) — what do you most look forward to in this season of new beginnings?
  • Is your blog or website new (loosely defined)? Tell us why you decided to launch it.
  • Publish a post in a genre, format, or media that’s totally new to you. For example: poets, share a photo (or several); photographers, write some flash fiction; travel bloggers, post a book review. (And so on and so forth.)

Survival in Film

View at least two movies that focus on World War II. List three specific events that deal with survival in a war setting. What survival strategies do these movie characters use? Are there any lessons to be learned from these movies.

Alternatively, view the movie Jaws. How does this movie deal with survival. What other movies have you enjoyed that also deal with the theme of survival?
