While I never use rubrics found online wholesale, they certainly give good ideas for creating units and our own rubrics.

The Snapshot Writing Tool: Help Students Create Visual Imagery Within Their Writing

The Snapshot Writing Tool: Help Students Create Visual Imagery Within Their Writing | the power of writing | Scoop.it

From Kevin's fabulous Edgalaxy Blog:

The Snapshot Writing Tool is designed to put students in a specific moment in time using a visual prompt such as a photo or video and then write about what you see? What you hear? What you smell? What you taste? and what you feel? Drawing upon all 5 senses.

The snapshot writing tool will really encourage your students create visual imagery within their writing, and they have a great deal of fun putting themselves in the perspective of the picture.

Students can either use a photo of their own anlongside the tool or alternately you can access my collection of 150 Amazing writing prompts here.

Sarah Gordon-Church's curator insight, October 1, 2013 3:22 AM

This is a FANTASTIC way to overcome the hesitant, fearful writer, the emerging writer, and the advanced writer all in one scoop! :) I have used this with success EVERY YEAR! The kids love it, it's relatable and produces some amazing alternatives to the boring form writing. This makes writing come alive for so many of my students! It boosts confidence and changes "Ugh, do we hafta write?" to "OOOOO! Can we do some more snapshot writing today!?!PLEASE!"

Everything in Writing and Life is Fiction

Everything in Writing and Life is Fiction | the power of writing | Scoop.it

When you tell yourself the story of your life, the story of your day, you edit and rewrite and weave a narrative out of a collection of random experiences and events. Your conversations are fiction. Your friends and loved ones—they are characters you have created. And your arguments with them are like meetings with an editor—please, they beseech you, you beseech them, rewrite me. You have a perception of the way things are, and you impose it on your memory, and in this way you think, in the same way that I think, that you are living something that is describable. When of course, what we actually live, what we actually experience—with our senses and our nerves—is a vast, absurd, beautiful, ridiculous chaos.

Writing Stories from Your Life | the power of writing | Scoop.it
I teach life story writing to boomers and seniors. Reading my students’ stories has given me a peek into the lives of those who’ve fought in wars or made ends meet on the home front; and of little girls who wandered along wooden floors in an old dime store, accompanied by the slightly sour aroma that emanated from the lunch counter one side of the store.
