This file contains a free chart to serve as a guide while students write narrative stories. Students should include details that "show" rather than "tell". Details that show describe a character's actions and encourages readers to infer that a character is joyful, confused, etc. Not only do these types of details make narrative writing more interesting, they are the types of details that are used by professional writers. Using them while writing improves writing skills as well as reading comprehension skills.
