Visual Prompts

Do images have an inner meaning?

Credit: “Class Act” by Jerry Craft


What do our actions and words say about our awareness for others?

How can we become a more accepting, respectful, and inclusive community?

On Black Shirt Day, we stood together to act on acceptance and to respect our forever-growing, diverse community. We took a look at this visual prompt and discussed about appropriate communication and what respect should be. We also shared stories of when we felt disrespected or felt powerless.

Here were some of the questions we reviewed in class:

  • What message do you think these panels from the book are trying to convey?
  • How do they relate to or comment on society or current events?
  • Can you relate to what’s depicted here personally?
  • What is your opinion of the message?

We will be writing a first-person (personal) paragraph response next class.


  • Think about your past and personal experiences
  • Think about your identity – what does your identity mean to you?
  • Think about the community around you (Maywood, Vancouver, BC, Canada, home country)


  • I will give you a brainstorming sheet
  • Write down the main idea in bullet-point form

Complete a paragraph response draft

See you all next week!

Hello class! I am excited to announce that we will be participating in a writing opportunity hosted by WCR.
For the next few weeks, we will be working on our stories.
We will submit our stories as a class by February 26th and to hopefully get selected for April, May, or June’s article.


First, we will brainstorm about our memorable events.

What is a story?

What components are included in a story?

Stories are important. Stories are shared with and passed down to our friends, peers, and families.

Stories are made up of significant events, experiences, places, and/or people.

In class today, we brainstormed a list of important experiences. 

  1. Please complete a list of 7 events/memories that were memorable to communicate the importance of a story.
  • (3) important school experiences that you participated in
  • (3) important valuable events or family experiences
  • (1) class experience you would like to share


Second, we will narrow down our ideas and choose ONE story to write about.

2.  We will be using a Power Paragraph writing tool to help us organizeSee the link below for the Power Paragraph writing tool document.

My students have worked hard in their English-language learning, making the most of the pandemic, and are excited to participate in WCR’s Family Literacy Week 2021 Contest! 🙂 

Here are three of our literacy goals if we were to win the literacy contest:

1) To learn more about the world.

2) To enjoy reading more as a community.

3) To purchase new books.

As a community, we strive to be S.T.A.R. learners, “Safe, Thoughtful, Accepting, Respectful”
We submitted our photos today! Wish us luck.
