Product Description
Students need to be aware of how important it is to visualize as they read. Students can practice visualizing any short story or a chapter or passage from a novel using this handout as a guide.

In the past I made the mistake of asking students to choose a passage(s) from a text and create illustrations for it. That strategy never worked well because students would often choose scenes that were not visually appealing. It was difficult for them to make the connection about how visualization can help them comprehend a text better.

I decided to guide them a bit more on what they should choose to illustrate. The more focused activity really helped them to "see" why visualization is so important.

Includes:
This handout consists of 2 pages (print double-sided) and can be used for any story. They are asked to find text evidence in a story based on the five senses.

Example:
I smell…
(Look for examples of fragrances, odors or aromas in the story.

Students are directed to write the line(s) or passages from the text and then illustrate the scene as they picture it in their mind.

The handout also includes a few questions to have students explain the importance of visualization and background knowledge.
