Do you use a writer’s notebook in your English classroom? Do you find yourself wishing that you had a list of journal writing prompts high school students will like? 

In this post, I will be sharing 55 different journal prompts. That’s enough for the whole year of fun writing prompts, used 1x per week, for the whole semester if used 2-3x per week, and enough for the whole quarter if used every day.

Digital vs. Paper Writer’s Notebooks

Two years ago, I was determined to have my students write. Every day. Inspired by 180 Days, I wanted to be the writer’s notebook queen of the world and change students’ lives through journal writing prompts.  

I went to the nearest Staples store and bought .20 cent composition notebooks. I gave them to students on the first day of school. We wrote in them, pasting in mentor texts for the first three weeks of school. Then, for various reasons, the writer’s notebooks stayed closed more often than not. It was not sustainable for me. 

Now, I’ve written in a previous post about choosing ONE thing to be your precious at the beginning of each school year. If paper writer’s notebooks are your jam, then rock on, friend! 

As for me, I now use and love digital writer’s notebooks. These fun writing journal prompts notebooks are created in Google Slides and shared with students via Classroom. These writing prompts for journals never get lost, are less time-consuming than regular writer’s notebooks, and can use all sorts of colors and design elements to capture students’ attention.

Journal Writing Prompts for High School Students

Below you’ll find 55 journal writing prompts. High school students will find plenty to say about these topics, but I suggest setting ground rules for writing and setting a time limit (with timer projected). 

First: Write for the whole time. 

Second: Don’t worry about making sense or making sure what you write is perfectly-edited. 

Third: Be honest and be specific.

59 Journal Topics for High School (Wish I’d Had these as a Teen!)


Journal topics for high school teens to process through feelings, express themselves, and understand better who they truly are.

You’re reading an article about journal topics for high school teens from someone who has literally been journaling since the second grade.

Here’s the proof:

When I didn’t know how to spell something, I put the starting letter and wrote in a line to fill it out later. Sometimes, I expressed myself in stickers.

Journal writing is a lifelong habit and practice that has served me well.

It’s helped me:

  • To express myself
  • To look back over periods of my life and make more sense of them
  • To work out my dreams for the future
  • To work out how to fix problems I’m currently facing
  • …and so much more

And I’d like to think that today’s article on journal topics for high school teens is me doing my part to pass along this awesome, lifelong practice.

These are exciting and thought-provoking questions that will help inspire teens to express themselves – to get what’s out of their head and start to make some sense of it, and to dream out their future.

Does a student need a diary and how to keep it correctly?

School diary online: how to choose and keep it effectively

Let's tell you what a school diary is and whether a child needs it. How to keep a diary for a junior high school student.

  • Text Link

It's no secret that planning is an important skill that helps us in our studies, work and everyday life. Often the first problems with organization begin at school age. For example, the child knew in advance what day the test would be, but he began to prepare the night before and sat at the textbooks until late at night. Then parents usually get nervous and swear, but more often than not, such procrastination simply indicates that the student needs to develop time management skills. A diary will be an effective assistant. If parents teach a younger student to plan their tasks on paper, he will acquire a valuable tool that will support him more than once in adulthood. nine0013

Why a student needs a diary

  • With a glider, a child can learn to independently control and plan their time, as well as set priorities: writing down tasks for a week, you can see when it is better to write an essay, and when to relax watching a cartoon.
  • A to-do list will help you never forget important things, giving a rest to the student's brain: he will no longer need to keep control dates and parents' requests in his head. This will relieve distracted and forgetful children from unnecessary stress, and in general, it will save the child and parents from unpleasant mistakes, such as a forgotten dance uniform or a missed lesson in a favorite circle. nine0010
  • The diary can be used for specific purposes, such as keeping track of your regular physical activity levels, reading more, or balancing school, activities and leisure.
  • For many children, the beautiful design of the diary, as well as the ability to draw on the pages of the notebook, will be an additional motivation for school and home duties.
  • In the modern world, a person needs to perceive large amounts of information and work in multitasking mode, so a competent organization will support not only at school, but also at a university, and later at work. nine0010


Which notebook is suitable for a diary

The choice of diaries today is great: lined and dated diaries are sold in office supply stores and on the Internet, with or without time slots, with a different set of sections. You can even find gliders adapted specifically for schoolchildren. But in general, any notebook or even a thick notebook that you can arrange in accordance with the needs of your child is suitable for a diary. Ideally, a student's diary should include spreads with space for all seven days of the week - this will help him when planning things, especially those that are completed in several stages. In addition, then the diary will remind the student during the school week that weekends and rest are just around the corner. nine0013

When buying a diary, it is important to pay attention to the following characteristics:

Format and size. The diary should be comfortable for the child to carry around, so it should be comfortable: not too thick, not too heavy, but big enough to be a pleasure to write in.
- Decoration. Choose a planning notebook with your child so that he really likes it. Funny drawings, nice color pages, a cover with your favorite cartoon characters - all this can serve as additional motivation for keeping a diary. nine0013 - Suitable for the needs and age of the child. The younger the child, the more important it is for the diary to be illustrated: visualization helps children plan their daily routine. If it is important for you to teach your child to keep track of time, try to find a glider whose pages are divided by hours. And vice versa: choose an unlined notebook if extra borders and restrictions cause him anxiety.

Tips on how to fill in the diary

  • Start by making a general to-do list for the week and discuss it with your child. Then help your child to put these things in the diary and find a place for them on specific days.
  • Teach your child to write down things every evening or at the beginning of the week and look at the diary every day.
  • When compiling a to-do list, you need to determine which task is the most important and urgent, put it first, and the rest of the things after it. Discuss together how much time a specific task requires: for example, one hour is enough for homework, and preparing reports can take a couple of evenings. Be sure to break down large tasks into small steps. nine0010
  • Teach your child to cross off or highlight completed tasks from a list. This will bring an element of gamification into the process and help the student to get job satisfaction.
  • Be sure to write down pleasant events in your diary. It is important that the child understands that business planning is not a duty, but a tool that helps to organize their life in such a way that they can do their favorite things without forgetting their responsibilities.

Example diary sections

  • Yearly calendar: holidays, planned trips, midterms and vacations can be marked in it.
  • Schedule of classes at school and circles for every day.
  • A weekly plan broken down by day that lists activities and tasks.
  • Pages with goals for the month or week: for example, preparation for the Olympics.
  • Pages with a list of the child's achievements for the week or month.
  • Various lists at the end of the notebook: a list of books for extracurricular reading or a list of films that the child wants to watch. nine0010

Dear friends!

We congratulate you on Victory Day!

This is the most important, most amazing holiday for all generations!

One must always remember that without the past there would be no present. Never forget this page in the history of our country. Low bow to the soldiers of Victory! nine0043

Happy May 9th!

This is the day of remembrance... This is the day of reminders of the heroic deeds of fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers... This is the day of the action "Immortal Regiment"; anyone who wants to honor the memory of his soldier of Victory can stand in his column.

In our school there was a holiday "Glory to the victorious people!"

On the eve of the significant date, the school hosted the action “The military path of my great-grandfather”, and the virtual museum “Living Memory of Past Years” was replenished with new exhibits: family heirlooms and video stories of students about their relatives - heroes of the Great Patriotic War. nine0004

Quite recently, our first-graders crossed the threshold of the school, they were all given the first textbook in their life - "ABC". Each child read the first words in it: “mother”, “peace”, “Motherland”.

And now it's time to say goodbye. Further along the country of Knowledge, the children will be led by the book "Literary Reading". She will teach them to love and understand literature, to be honest, brave, kind. nine0007

The holiday "Farewell, ABC" was held at our school on March 18.

Both teams of our school, "Chitayki" and "Book Lovers" became the winners of the battles. Congratulations to the guys and good luck in the next literary competitions.

New Year is one of our favorite holidays. In the New Year's fairy tale, a miracle always happens: Santa Claus comes and brings gifts. But for this to happen, you need to overcome obstacles, make efforts and maintain confidence in a happy ending. nine0007

All this was done by the students of our school: they overcame a painful illness, made efforts, mastering sciences at a distance, and believed that a fairy tale would happen.

All efforts were not in vain.

We invite everyone to watch the fabulous performance "New Year's Trouble", the actors of which were our guys.

We wish everyone the fulfillment of desires and the ability to achieve their dreams.

The events of the Great Patriotic War are moving further and further away from us, there are fewer and fewer of its participants among us. Time takes its toll. But it has no power over one thing - over our memory, which passes from generation to generation. The people are strong not only by their army, but also by their memory.

These days we remembered two important dates: 78 years since the lifting of the siege of Leningrad and the 79th anniversary of the Battle of Stalingrad. Two cities - two symbols of our country. Symbols of courage, unbending will, faith in Victory. City on the Neva... city on the Volga...

Class hours were held at the school dedicated to those “great years”. The conversation was about the feats accomplished by children. To study and teach in besieged Leningrad is a feat, a feat in the name of a future peaceful life. Fighting with weapons in your hands in the bombed-out Stalingrad, going into reconnaissance, blowing up enemy convoys at the age of 8-15 is a feat in the name of defending your country.

Patriotism for children is an important link with the concept of Motherland. Without respect for the history of one's Fatherland, one cannot cultivate self-esteem and self-confidence. nine0007

Constitution Day is celebrated all over the world. By the place that this holiday occupies in the life of society, one can judge the role of the Law in this country.

December 12 is Constitution Day in Russia, public holiday. Every citizen of our country should know their rights and obligations. This topic was devoted to a class hour in our school.


Our guys had a virtual meeting with space in the planetarium of the city of Bogotá. The guys here were interested in everything: a scientific and educational film, a tour of the halls, the department of the experimentarium.

Quite recently, a bust of the world's first cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin was installed in the planetarium of the capital of Colombia. A memorable photo of the students of our school was taken near him.
