Say it in Six Words

For the past couple weeks in my Writing for Non-Print course we have been presenting lesson plans for developing digital literacies. Several of the lesson plans seemed like something I would love to use in my own classroom someday. The one that I liked the most was called Stop. Shoot. Send. Using Phone Cameras to Find Meaning and to Engage Students. My favorite part of the lesson plan is the six word story. Sometimes students don't need to write a one thousand word essay to express what is on there mind, and fewer words may have a great impact. We took a look at and on my own I found another helpful website with examples Here is one that I found that I really enjoyed..

Six Words. Right to the Point.



  1. I blogged about this as well! I really do love this idea- I think it will be so much fun to use in the classroom. Thanks for posting the sites you found!

  2. It is certainly a creative idea. A picture is worth a thousand words, a poet can do it in 6. I'm not sure if I'll ever use the lesson plan discussed as is, but seeing the creative aspect of summarizing and interpreting a moment in 6 concise words may be something I can use.

  3. I'm glad you guys liked this idea (: After presenting it, I am sure I would like to use this in my class as well. There are so many different ways that this can be used in a classroom and I think it's a beneficial way to teach students the art of summarizing.

  4. These are pretty cool. I think they would be fun to use in the classroom! I remember discovering them in high school, thinking they would be easy, but they are actually pretty difficult to create (at least good ones).
