Are your students rushing their writing or turning in vague, boring work? Every writer needs to learn the crucial rule of showing, not telling in their work. With this writing workshop mini-lesson, students will learn what it means to show, not tell and practice doing so.
This NON-EDITABLE resource includes:
The slideshow explains "Show. Don't tell" to students, comparing examples of "telling sentences" with "showing paragraphs". After, students will receive a sentence strip with a "telling sentence" on it that they must turn into a "showing paragraph".
The included lesson plan breaks down the lesson with suggestions for modifications. The student worksheet gives students a place to brainstorm ideas before writing.
