Product Description
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.

This document comes from Writing Lessons (Differentiated Lessons). The complete file teaches about writing powerful introductions, using transition words, types of text details, capitalization and punctuation, plus more.
