One year of picture requests: More than 160 images to write with
We have added a new function to our day-to-day range of pupil activity this year. These brief, approachable, image-driven contributions with photos and illustration from the Times provide a wide range of oral and writing answers - from creative story telling and narration to the construction of an arguement or analysis of what an "Op-Art" work could say.
Below we have categorised the over 160 prompt that we released in the 2016-17 academic year on the basis of the way of writing that they primarily encouraged schoolchildren. We also have a curriculum on how to use Picture Promptts, along with other Times pictures if you are looking for more inspiring.
When you use this function with your pupils, or if you have other suggestions on how to use pictures and prompt with pupils, let us know in the comment field. Who do you think this picture, this diagram or this comic is?
Complementary writing requests
Writing creatively encourages the creation of breathtaking images. Nowadays I would like to present a compilation of prompt from 1200 Creative Writing prompt, which contains a multitude of literature, poems and non-fiction writing prot. Several of the prompt in the volume are newcomers. Some of the protests I am currently discussing are simply but provocatively pictures that are supposed to trigger a writing meeting.
When writing, the visual language is the keys that can unleash the reader's fantasy. Rendering an entire picture with the right word combinations makes it appear magical in the reader's head like a photo or mimic. There is a lady in a dark gown laying on the ground in a confused room.
Look at the picture above. This detail was omitted from the example phrase to make an empty area that the user can fill in. If you read it, you could think that clothes strewn over a rug, a busted light and an wounded lady are awaiting help on the ground.
Someone else could think of the consequences of a party: filthy crockery, empty flasks and a lady who drank too much ale. Some readers will think of a feral and pretty young lady, others of an older, more sophisticated one. There are just enough details in the perfectly balanced combination of descriptions and whitespace to make the painting appear, but not so much that the reader's own fantasy is failing.
It is your task as a novelist to know how many details you need to incorporate in your writing to highlight the most important aspects of each picture. Today's creative writing instructions are concerned with the creation of images in written form. Every command line is made up of an element that serves as an inspirational element for a bigger picture.
You have to draw the last lines so that the painting and its emotive implication become clear. While working through these creative command prompt forms, ask your question about the command line you choose and the screen that causes it. Raise a question until the screen is sharp. Then, use your words to draw the painting you have created in your head.
They can be used to write an article, a brief history, a verse or a fast free write. Wherever it leads you, just stay on it. A great void and great splendour of the room. When you' re done, come back and tell us how these creative prompt tasks worked for you.
