Hey Siri, here are some resources for you to consider re: your lesson today...

Have you seen the great "photo finish" series in Time Out New York - great idea to use as a model for students. Here are a few samples:

You can click through them for a long time...

You might also check out Sara B. Kajder's Bringing the Outside In - the title says it is for reluctant readers but it is much more flexible than that.

Also this book is loaded with visual writing ideas and prompts - Picturing Texts by Lester Faigley, Diana George, Anna Palchik, and Cynthia Selfe.
