Visual sources with carefully drawn boxes outlined on them.
What to do:

I just noticed the above tweet on my timeline by @Ralston_H.
I don’t know how Helen R. is using this idea, but I am going to do the following…
- When providing students with a source/image/visual prompt I will add an outline around key areas of importance
- I will then ask students to write a paragraph per outlined box
- I will ask them to consider the sequencing of their paragraphs and how to draw out key elements within the boxes
- Students can also think about whether any areas have more or less significance than others
Students can work individually or in pairs/groups for this task.
Cut the boxes up and give them to the students one by one, asking them to piece together the image as they write?
A more simple way?

Do this with text? A poem?
