Visualize and Draw to Increase Comprehension

Improve readers' comprehension with a pair of visualization opportunities. First they listen, eyes closed, as you read a description from Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach, and discuss ideas about what they "see." After you read Shel Silverstein's poem "Sick," pupils draw what they visualized from the text and share with group members to compare/contrast their work.

I have been extremely happy with the materials I've located. I'm always looking for new ways to spice things up with my high school students. I use group activities quite often to help my students so finding other ideas is a time-saver for sure. Member since 2010.
