Product Description
This mini-lesson is the perfect addition to any writing unit! It challenges students to cast aside their normal descriptors of narrators, characters, authors, etc. and use verbs that specifically identify their points of analysis. The lesson includes:

two comprehensive lists of analytic and active verbs
examples of "weak" and "improved" sentences
a practice section for students to transform two of their own weak sentences into analytic sentences
a practice section for students to revise their own paragraphs using analytic and active verbs
