NYT Picture a Day
« on: February 25, 2020, 05:06:22 PM »
The New York Times posted this lesson plan activity in 2017, but can still be used and adapted today. The idea of it is to prompt students to write based on a picture. This is a low-stakes writing activity that will help engage students and help access their creativity. The nice thing about this activity is that there is no “right” answer to this prompt and the teacher doesn’t actually have to collect them. As long as students are writing and partaking in the activity, this can be a simple way to get students writing. Additionally, these pictures can be adapted to fit a unit or a book that the class is working on.
