PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Show, Don't Tell is one of the most important techniques a writer can master.

Although many writers are aware of the importance of the technique, they are not sure how to accomplish it. In this 14 page lesson, Charlene Tess, author of Simple Steps to Sentence Sense, presents 5 easy ways to show rather than tell, and provides students with exercises to practice what they have learned.

Your students will have fun learning to show rather than tell and in doing so will greatly improve their writing.

Charlene Tess has taught creative writing to both high school students and to adults.

She is the author of numerous articles, novels, and nonfiction books.

Fantastic lesson for secondary students. It gives students a chance to practice each skill introduced. I also like that it includes the rules for punctuating dialogue within the lesson. I will definitely use this lesson and look for more stuff from this teacher.
