Descriptive writing: Responding to an 'image' stimulus

In this lesson we will be looking at how to respond to an image-based description task: either of a person, persons or objects. We will start by thinking about different character types and their function in written texts before experimenting with a number of stimulus images and techniques. At the end of the lesson there will be a quiz to recap on our learning.

This quiz includes images that don't have any alt text - please contact your teacher who should be able to help you with an audio description.
