Product Description
Use social media to help your students understand how to write using vivid sensory details! The "snapshot" is a quick addition to your writing-instruction pedagogy that is easily digestible for students. This page is focused on writing about a person.

Step 1: Choose a picture for the class (or have them pick an image of a person from their social media account.

Step 2: Use the snapshot page to capture the person in writing. Side 1 asks them to focus on a person's visual details (facial features, clothing, colors, etc). Side 2 asks them to consider the Mood of the environment, and has a section where they can combine these details into a well-crafted passage. An easy way to teach vivid writing!

(For writing about places, see the accompanying "Snapshot" page in my store.)
