    Magazine Picture Prompts
    By Kate P.

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I am a teacher of the deaf and hard of hearing. For one of my university courses, we had to compile a portfolio of magazine pictures to use for language development. They had to have some sort of action occuring, not just a pose. We had to have a certain number of single concept (one action) and multi-concept (more than one action) pictures ... NO TEXT! While they aren't specifically for use as story prompts, that is one possible use. In fact, I remember my sixth grade teacher using magazine pictures as writing prompts and how much I enjoyed it. I found women's magazines (i.e. Woman's Day, Family Circle, Good Housekeeping, etc.) had the most appropriate pictures; however, you may find some clever advertising pictures in other publications.

    Hope this helps!
