Writing Workshop Wednesdays (6)

Yesterday I met some amazing students, and we discussed second-order writing where instead of simply telling, a writer explains, elaborates, and exemplifies in his/her writing.  So, for today’s Writing Workshop Wednesdays writing prompt, we have a visual, Andrew Wyeth’s Christina’s World, 1948.  At first glance, what is happening in this image?  Who is the woman, and why is she lying on the grass?  What is she thinking?  What is the building at the top of the hill?

Writing Prompt:  Describe what is happening in the painting below.
