How to make an interesting and EFFECTIVE lesson plan: Include the instruction of "Please point to seven things..."

An interesting lesson plan. .. ask students to take a photo and then POINT TO and describe SEVEN things that they notice in the photo.

Richard E. Clark of USC pointed out that this procedure often gets people to write MORE and to write more complex sentences with more details.    (Why?  Because you have asked for a specific number of things to comment about).  The instruction about "POINT TO" is important, too, for stimulating the focus on details.
