Pictorial Pleasures OR A new way to evoke writing

Home Main Submit Contents Recipes

For all proverb/quotation lovers, I found a site which contains not
only a great variety of quotes, but some beautiful photographs as
well. I gave my
strong students some time to look through these photographs
and write a descriptive paragraph about any one...it worked
beautifully and
evoked some amazing writing. Two even chose to write poems!

On another occasion, they had a look through the quotations, and were
asked
to pick: something familiar, something funny, something they
agreed/disagreed with, something they didn't quite comprehend, etc.
After
handing in the assignment, each pupil read out some of his/her
favorites and
invited comments...It was a different sort of activity and worked
well. The
fact that this site was built by an 'amateur' impressed them and
brought it closer to home.

You'll find the site at

Enjoy!
