"Caption It!" is a standards-based activity that features over 25 images for students to write captions. Directions are included for both a creative writing exercise and an expository (journalism) writing exercise.
Caption writing is a shorter writing exercise that still practices proper conventions of grammar, usage, capitalization, punctuation, and spelling in standard English. Start with these shorter exercises before moving to larger writing pieces such as formal essays. In addition, fostering creativity makes the process of writing more enjoyable for students.
Bundle includes handouts, the images, and a Powerpoint presentation with the photo prompt images embedded.
The activity aligns with the Common Core Standards for grades 6-12 in Writing, which are listed in the document.
This IS included in my Journalism Writing & Planning Bundle
