BONUS - Quick Picture Strategy for Poetry
The Quick Picture is a simple and powerful method for stimulating recall and promoting critical thinking. Students generate quick images of ideas they produce in their minds. The students can draw these pictures any way they choose. This process of personal creativity promotes associative recall; the students remember the significance of the drawing because no one is telling them what to draw. This is NOT your typical “draw a picture.”
