Teaching parts of speech in context can be a challenge. This PowerPoint lesson offers a straightforward way to help students do more thinking about adjectives. Specifically it addresses a problem with adjectives--that sometimes adjectives lead to telling in writing as opposed to showing. The lesson shows how a mix of good adjectives coupled with good description is the best option for writers. The lesson includes a writing sample to make the point of showing vs. telling. It also shows students how thinking about adjectives and description is a good option for revision. This lesson is connected to the book, The Writing Diner, by Tim Hargis.
