A Twist on Getting Students to Write

I will do just about anything to get my students to write, so when I happened upon this Project365 app, I quickly made the connection between photos and writing. I am going to try to do this myself:  take one picture for each day of the year. And, I am going to try to get my students to do it.
I’ve heard of teachers telling their kids to get out their phones, search through their pictures, and choose one to write about– it’s a cool idea.
Creating a

daily photo journal

just takes it to a new and higher level.

Just like so many of my New Year’s resolutions, I don’t know if I’ll be able to keep up with it (I’m already 14 days behind), but I want to try.
So, do you want to join me?
Get the app, and let’s do this!
