Boxed up

Resources:



Visual sources with carefully drawn boxes outlined on them.
Each “box” is one paragraph.They revisit each para with each new skill acquired. #engchatukpic.twitter.com/Q7zBk6tobJ

What to do:




I just noticed the above tweet on my timeline.


I don’t know how Helen R. is using this idea, but I am going to do the following…




  1. When providing students with a source/image/visual prompt I will add an outline around key areas of importance
  2. I will then ask students to write a paragraph per outlined box
  3. I will ask them to consider the sequencing of their paragraphs and how to draw out key elements within the boxes

Students can work individually or in pairs/groups for this task.



Variations:




Cut the boxes up and give them to the students one by one, asking them to piece together the image as they write?






Do this with text? A poem?
