many creative options to explore....

Coach Jeffery's curator insight, January 9, 2013 9:38 AM

ReadWriteThink provides templates for a variety of writing projects that incorporate a cube. The Bio Cube may be used after students have read, or before they write, a biography (or autobiography). The Mystery Cube will help them recall a mystery story after they have read it, or to pre-write one on their own. There is also a story Cube that will help them map out "key elements of a story" and there is Create-Your-Own Cube...you select the questions to a topic and then respons.

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

The Snapshot Writing Tool: Help Students Create Visual Imagery Within Their Writing | Visual Writing Prompts | Scoop.it

Interesting writing idea... 

 

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.

I'm always interested in a good prompt!

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!"

My StoryMaker : Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh

My StoryMaker : Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh | Visual Writing Prompts | Scoop.it

My StoryMaker lets you control characters and objects - and creates sentences for you! Once you are done with your story, you can print it out. You cannot go back and edit a story once you have ended it but, if you click "yes" when asked to share it with others, you can print it out again by entering the magic number it gives you in the box on the right. Since lack of space forces us to delete story files older than 1 month, please save the .pdf file that prints to your own computer.
