COME BACK, NEW YORK, ALL IS FORGIVEN: USING IMAGES IN THE CREATION OF DETAILED DESCRIPTIONS
English Language Arts
This project uses model texts to demonstrate how imagery is used in creating detailed and nuanced descriptions of two places: New York City and Winnipeg. Additionally, students see how the imagery used shows the speakers’ complex relationships with these cities. After analyzing the model texts, students write their own poems in the same structure about their own chosen places (schools, neighbourhoods, towns, cities, or imagined places from the perspective of a character). It is designed to be used synchronously with time for students to work asynchronously but can be easily adapted to be a fully asynchronous activity.
How can we use imagery to create detailed descriptions and show our complex relationship with a place?
