Help your students write an outstanding memoir with the Memoir: More Show, Dont Tell Practice. Includes directions that can be printed onto a transparency or passed out as handouts, thirty sentences in the form of cards, and a student drafting sheet. Students choose a card with a vague sentence on it. First, students individually rewrite the sentence they selected so that they are showing the scene instead of just telling about it. Then, students pass their sheet to a teammate or classmate. Students rewrite the new sentence in front of them. Everyones sheets are passed around until all teammates have written their improved versions of the original sentence. Directions explain how to include a class voting to determine who will win the title of Best Show-Dont-Tell Sentence. Students think this is so fun! This document is included in the Sensory Details, Show Dont Tell MINI Unit All-in-One DEAL and the Memoir Curriculum MEGA Unit All-in-One DEAL.
