That's The Story!

Images can inspire powerful writing. Engage your class in narrative writing with the idea included here. Individuals each snap a digital photograph that includes action. The teacher then mixes these up and hands each class member a photo that they did not take. Writers then compose a narrative story based on the image, using a provided graphic organizer to help. Share stories at the end! The resource lists standards for informative writing. While this could be done, the activity seems to more strongly apply to the narrative writing standards.
