Objective of Collaboration
For one of the most memorable descriptive writing lessons that also builds listening skills, join another class via video conference for a Monster Match. Before the match, each class draws monsters and then writes the most descriptive paragraph they can. On the day of the match, each class takes a turn reading a paragraph while the other class' members draw a monster from the description. Then - the BIG REVEAL - the monsters are shown! The discussion then evaluates whether the description lacked some parts, needed better words or was right on target. To see a Monster Match in action with commentary from a third grade teacher, watch the video on The Teaching Channel called "Monster Match: Using Art to Improve Writing" Interested?
