Jeff Brickler offers this evolution of OWATS:
I was thinking about this variation on OWATS (one word at a time stories). In the lower levels (1-2), the OWATS might be too much output. I thought that maybe we could do the same thing but have them draw pictures stories instead of written stories. Then we could put them up on the screen with a document camera or take a picture of them and put them into a Presentation. At this point, we could do a look and discuss with the class or we could work with the artist to ask questions to elicit his/her story. This could prove to be compelling and comprehensible as it would have an image to help with comprehensibility. During this session, we could have the scriba write down what we say and then give it back the next day as a warm up/review reading.
