Great Writing Prompt

The New York Times recently released a photo collection called "A Moment in Time." Basically, the resource has collected all of the pictures that were taken from around the world at the same moment on May 2nd. It is really compelling. I think it would make a fabulous writing prompt for students. Students could select a single picture, or they could write about the diversity of experiences that were happening at the same moment. Either way, it would be very interesting! (I would surely check the images to ensure they are appropriate before sharing them with students. I didn't see anything inappropriate in my exploration.) Thanks to Larry Ferlazzo for this resource!

  1. This looks like a great idea. I'll be using this at the end of the year. Thanks for the share. :-)
