  1. I team teach, and am the Math and Science half. I would have never thought of using a writing prompt for math...thank you for this awesome idea! I can't wait to try this activity in class.

  3. Michelle,
    David Cox does some great visual and video prompts for math. Same with Dan Meyer. Sometimes my photo prompts were simply, "Explain why this is a bad problem" and using really bad visual word problems from the book. I'd love to hear how the prompts work out for you.

    NP,
    Thanks for the kind words!

  4. These are, without a doubt, some of the coolest writing prompts I have ever seen.

  7. I believe these forms of prompts could be well used at postgrad level. Thanks for this interesting idea. I have been looking at ways to expand our online distance teachers skills in posing starter discussion questions. This is a great way to go...

  8. Your photo prompts are great...is it OK to use them in my middle-school class? I usually do a free write on Friday, but I'm finding them boring, and I think some of these would be much more fun, but I want your permission...

  9. Dear Andrew,
    That would be cool! Let me know how it works.

    Dear k nida,
    Of course you can share them! I only use Creative Commons pictures, so everything from the question to the visual is free to use.
