The New York Times has introduced a new feature in its Learning Network. Picture Prompts is a collection of images with accompanying questions that support writing.
What’s Going On in This Picture?, another New York Times Learning Network resource, continues to be produced. It contains intriguing photographs without captions. This resource can be used as a conversation starter as well as a writing prompt.
You can find some ideas on how to use photographs and other illustrations in teaching in How to Teach With Our Picture Prompts (and Other Times Images) and Using Photos With English-Language Learners.
