Classroom Power Tool - Photo Prompts

Starting this week, I will be sharing a new Classroom Power Tool each week.  These will be tools that I use in my own classroom to help my students make connections.  I believe that technology used just for the sake of using technology is a waste of time but when used to make the learning more meaningful, can be extremely powerful.

Photo Prompts are such a great way to engage students at the beginning of class.  They are so easy to use and encourage critical thinking as well as creativity.  These photo prompts are a simple way to encourage writing in your classroom.

Photo Prompts are great for any age group.  They are simple images with very few words.  Writing Prompts are appropriate for middle school and high school students as they ask for more detail and are often about more sensitive topics.
