Teach your students how to write a descriptive essay that's not just a list of traits. With numerous examples and opportunities to practice, this fun lesson teaches students how descriptive writing is used to draw the reader in and keep her interested. In descriptive writing, the writer chooses details in order to create a DOMINANT IMPRESSION – the quality, mood, or atmosphere conveyed.
Worksheets provide practice in recognizing objective/subjective description and metaphor and simile. Answer keys are provided.
