Ready to print journal with 92 photo prompts that encourage critical thinking.
Perfect to send home with students for summer break! (Prompts for June 1 - August 31)
Each of these prompts requires students think critically about a topic and color photograph. The prompts require students to:
* Make Inferences:  How do you think this girl is feeling at the moment? What makes you think so?  Where in the world do you think this photo was taken? What makes you think so?
* Support an Opinion/Claim:  Should teachers assign reading or homework assignments over summer breaks? Why or why not?  Do you think there should be a limit to how high or how fast roller coasters are allowed to be built? Why or why not?
* Draw Conclusions: What skills, talents, and personality traits do you think are most important for a lifeguard at the beach?
* Write Creatively:  Write the beginning of a story based on this photograph. Imagine this is the setting for a story. What might be the problem or conflict for the main character?
* Reflect: <.b> What do you think is the hardest part of flying a kite?  Why do you think fear of heights is such a common phobia? What is one thing you are afraid of?
The booklet prints best on a color printer, but can also be printed in black and white.
To print the booklet so it prints double-sided to be stapled in the middle to create a book, be sure your print settings are set to “Print double-sided; Flip on short edge.”
