Student Photos as Writing Prompts: A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The presenters share four lessons showing how students’ own smartphone photos got them writing. Tasks varied from descriptive to analytical writing and yielded surprisingly strong results. Students wrote authentic pieces which demonstrated improved vocabulary and structure—not to mention pride in performance. Lesson plans and examples will be shared.
