A different thought on 'explain' and 'describe' questions

One of the biggest problems that most students face in physics is writing describe and explain questions. They might understand the concept and be able to apply the formulae and use mathematical methods to solve problems, yet be unable to translate that understanding to written answers.

There is no easy solution. The reasons students struggle with them range from basic problems with writing to problems with ordering their ideas, to those that can't identify the key thoughts they need in order to make the explanation or description work.

However, I was having a play with PicLits, and had an idea about a creative way to make writing explanations and descriptions fun and interesting. Check out the PicLit below - just click on it to see the full text.
