PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This simple writing project emphasizes the importance of writing with detail.

In this activity, students will write in detail (almost to exaggeration) how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. They should write it so that someone who has never made a sandwich, opened peanut butter or jelly could make it.

After all students have finished the writing, you would read the papers aloud while following their exact instructions and see if they included enough detail to end up with a complete sandwich.

Included in this unit are:

- directions for the teacher
- two prewriting activities - listing the items in sequence, and writings a list of verbs to include
- 5 writing papers
- revising and editing checklist
