This is one of my all-time favorite quick writing strategies. It can be used with any topic and can serve as a pre or post assessment. Just select a topic and grab a nonfiction text from your school library. Ask your students to draw a picture of the topic before you read the text, then read the text and have them draw a second picture. They will compare and contrast their two drawings and write about the changes they made based on their new learning.
