The format to collect the written sample is given to each participant and, based on what has been observed, the young people write a story in such a way that they narrate what happened in the image, using all the identified elements.Results: according to the analysis carried out, several similar characteristics are identified in all the writings such as: absence of the narrative structure itself, nominating elements of the caricature without establishing relations between them and using simple sentences of predominance Subject - Verb, such as: "father read news", "The happy child".
