Materials

Computer


Paper plates with pictures (Pictures for paper plates are available on pages 2-12 in this document.)
Description

Paper plate writing is a collaborative writing approach. Collaborative writing can lead to projects that are richer and more complex than those produced by individuals.



Step-by-Step

  1. Open a new MS Word document and type a description of the picture you have been given.

  2. Turn your picture over, so no one will be able to see it. The next person must be able to visualize your picture from the description you have written.

  3. Move to the computer on your right and read the description and begin a story from the description of the picture. Establish a setting and create characters. Stop when time is called.

  4. Move to the next computer and read the story and continue by adding conflict. (Stop at the end of the sentence.)

  5. Move to the next computer and add dialogue and transitional devices. (Stop at the end of the word you are writing.)

  6. Move to the next computer and write a conclusion.

  1. Move to the next computer and revise for vivid words, combine sentences to vary sentence types, and edit for grammar, usage, and mechanics. (Students would have only one or two things to do to improve the story.)

  2. Return to original computer and read the story about your picture.


  3. Tell participants that they might want to put students in groups (those who have taken part in the specific stories) and let them look at the pictures, read the stories, and choose the best story to share with the whole class.
