PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product is part of the Showing vs. Telling: Bundle Pack.

This product contains 2 Powerpoint presentations with writing prompts for students to practice “Show, Don’t Tell.”

The first Powerpoint contains 7 writing prompts that require descriptions. In the preview, these have a red border.

The next Powerpoint contains 9 emotion prompts, 5 of which have examples in the Notes section of the presentations. Emotions are a critical area for showing the reader instead of telling. If you write “Mike was scared,” the readers won’t feel his fear. Readers don’t care what a character feels; they care about what they experience through the character. These prompts say to describe a character with a specific emotion without naming the emotion.

No part of this product may be sold, given away, or posted online. Your purchase grants the use of this product to one person. Additional copies may be purchased at a reduced rate for your colleagues. Thank you for respecting the time and effort that went into this project.

Thanks to Teaching Super Power and Designs by Jay Jay for my cover graphics.
