In both informative writing
and fiction writing
students need to learn the importance of using precise detail.
This 4-page printable
activity presents the steps of an INTERDISCIPLINARY WRITING-AND-ART PROJECT.
. . .
• Writing students chose prints of paintings and then wrote a detailed description of them
• Art students used just the written descriptions
and created a painting from them
• Writing students compared the completed paintings with their descriptions, and realized theimportance of details, of close examination, and of precise writing
This classroom-tested is suitable for junior high, high school, and adult students.
