Looking Closely at Holiday Photos
Starting with an old photo, students will write about a holiday scene from a particular person or item's point of view.
All photos from the Library of Congress.
- Students spend time noting details in their photo.
- They brainstorm possible perspectives within their photo.
- Next, they write down sensory details using that perspective.
- Finally, they write in free verse (or any structure you'd like) about the scene using their perspective. Repeat using a second perspective!
