This Presentation is designed as a collaborative practice activity to be used after the elements of Descriptive Writing have been taught.
This Power Point consists of 5 slides and gives students specific step-by-step instructions to change student-generated "boring sentences" into new and improved "showing sentences."
Students work in groups of 4 passing their sentences to a new group member for each new step (a total of 4 rotations). Each step progresses from basic to figurative.
Students love writing that first "boring" sentence and are impressed with the revised "showing" version they receive back.
