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.
Step 1: This page is focused on writing about a place. Have them pick an image of a place/location from their social media account (or one they like from another account).
Step 2: Use the snapshot page to capture the scene in writing. Side 1 asks them to focus on a place's visual and historical features. Side 2 asks them to consider the Mood of the environment, and has a section where they can combine their details into a well-crafted passage. An easy way to teach vivid writing!
(For writing about people, see the accompanying "Snapshot" page in my store.)
