The Mysteries of Harris Burdick

One of my favourite writing activities involves the images from The Mysteries of Harris Burdick by Chris Van Allsburg. The images alone spark the imagination and lend themselves to an unlimited amount of stories that can be told.

Over the next few weeks, students will be writing their own short stories to go along with one of the pictures. We’ve started with a graphic organizer and students will be assessed using a single point rubric. I learned about this type of rubric from Jennifer Gonzales of Cult of Pedagogy. I’m excited to see what the students come up with and how this tool will work with our group.
