Product Description
Part of understanding "showing writing" is recognizing what showing writing is NOT. This Power Point starts with a model passage that gives the students a relevant example of showing writing.

In this exercise, students will work with a partner to deconstruct a contemporary reading passage by first identifying showing writing (specific nouns, strong verbs, figurative language) and then changing it into "blah" writing.

In simplifying the writing, students are practicing with grammar in context as well (e.g. parts of speech, sentence structure).

Students are surprised how challenging deconstructing a piece of writing can be but come away with a better understanding of the components of showing writing.
