This is a lesson I can't wait to teach each year! It guides students to understand the concept of imagery through a gradual-release-of-responsibility model, and includes a teacher's copy (with speaking notes), as well as a guided-notes WS for your students. This lesson always precedes our narrative unit, and prepares students to engage the five senses in their own writing. There is an excerpt from the wonderful short story, "The Sniper", by Liam O'Flaherty. Enjoy!
