Students select one favourite image and read its caption. Students pair it with one of the sustainable development goals/world issues.


Step Two
Find one photo image from your own personal experience that is worthy of being added to the collection. This image must fit the UN criteria for global issues. Create a title and a 100-word caption (a mini text type) to present and justify your choice. 
Be ready for step 3 next lesson.

Another Tip
Photo captions should be written in complete sentences and in the present tense. The present tense gives the image a sense of immediacy. When it is not logical to write the entire caption in the present tense, the first sentence is written in the present tense and the following sentences are not.
