The back-to-school assignment: Updated

A new take on an old favourite..
For my first day back at school, I tried a new take on an old favourite – having students select three pictures from their social media accounts which could be used to summarize their holidays. Then ask the students to describe what is happening in the pictures.

This really engaged the learners in the exercise and also enabled them to write about activities they enjoy. It also gives the teacher value insights to the students’ lives.
