Your task: Choose one portrait from those displayed on our classroom wall. Write a detailed portrait paragraph (or more) describing the features of that person! Shhh....DON'T TELL anyone the portrait you chose; we'll see if your descriptive writing can SHOW us with the details!

Students choose from 60 different pictures that have been displayed in the room. Using clipboards, students gather around the photos and put their descriptive writing talents to work! Later, students read their work and others guess their character.

This bundle includes the task, an example, a student checklist and two types of rubrics.
