The Stuff of Stories: Using Museums to Inspire Student Writing

Middle schoolers write descriptions, narratives, and dialogues based on objects of art and time periods in a museum. They base several writing assignments on art objects and paintings, including a literal description and an emotional story. They then create a dialogue between two art objects and choose a time period as a setting for a story. If your class won't be visiting a museum in the near future, you could use photographs or a slide show of famous art.
