In class we are discussing descriptive writing. I showed my students a picture of my parents cabin and had them describe it. After getting them to say all the usual things (height, color, shape, etc), I tried to get them to think beyond the norm and describe the picture using feelings, similes and imagination. I prompted them with questions like "If you were at this house, what do you think you would hear?"
This happened in class D.
Me: If you were standing here and looking forward, what do you think you would see?
Angela (student): *looks at the picture, then looks at me* A camera.
I nearly tripped I was laughing so hard.
