Using an infographic for writing

June 3, 2011

I was talking to a fellow teacher and said that I would like to try using an infographic as the basis for students to write from. It seems like a good way to provide content and examples which students could use in constructing a paragraph. However, most infographics I look at are too long and very complicated. Today, though I found one I would like to try out.

I am not teaching writing until the fall. Still, this looks like a great one to use. We could discuss the word bullying and elicit examples before we begin the writing. Since much of the information including a definition is provided, students could work more on shaping the information into well-constructed paragraphs. I can’t wait to try it out.
