Make an impact: Ask yourself, "What place or book or movie has touched my heart? What sets my mind on fire?" and then describe the place or movie or book without using "It's very GOOD or WONDERFUL and you should see / read it"

The exercise is fun:   Write about a place or a book or a movie and explain WHY it is good or awesome.   Use other adjectives and put us in the story.

Or talk about how you feel when you are in that place or when you see that movie

I'm thinking about a place that is located about twenty minutes by car north of Orlanod and north of Disney.  Wekiva springs has water that comes from 200 miles away.  Rain falls in the mountains of Georgia and filters underground.

the water picks up small particiles of rock and becomes filled with minerals.

when the water emerges from the ground, it comes through a hole that is 10 meters under water.  the spring gives 1 million liters of fresh water each hour and i have enjoyed so many minutes sitting in this water.

I feel so relaxed when I sit in that water.  The soft minerals touch my skin, caress my fingers and make me feel special.   I hope everyone gets a chance to see this place...  the best time is when there is almost nobody there... but when I hold my breath and go underwater, I can be on a paradise island for thirty seconds, alone with my loved one, and I can feel her touch through the water.

wow, such a magical place

the location is near Apopka  Florida

This exercise works when the teacher can invest as much energy and fire as the students.  I am inspired by my students who have written delightful and passionate experssions about interesting places.
