Pictorial Pleasures OR A new way to evoke writing
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
evoked some amazing writing. Two even chose to write poems!
On another occasion, they had a look through the quotations, and were
to pick: something familiar, something funny, something they
agreed/disagreed with, something they didn't quite comprehend, etc.
handing in the assignment, each pupil read out some of his/her
invited comments...It was a different sort of activity and worked
fact that this site was built by an 'amateur' impressed them and
brought it closer to home.
