PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity addresses common problems students have with eliminating "dead" words and using the "Show, Don't Tell" technique in narrative and descriptive writing. It provides students with solutions and examples to four common problems: exchanging one dead word for another, overusing adjectives, eliminating seemingly impossible dead words, and over complicating sentences.
