I've been looking for a way to help my sophomores move past the writing and actually think about the text. I created this and did the first one myself. I found I really had to pay attention to the story and think about what stuck out to me. I had to inference to figure out why and then creating my image as the final step was difficult - I wanted to make sure it could show what I was attempting to talk about.
This could easily go into an interactive notebook and be used for all sorts of stories.
