Show Not Tell description writing practice exercise designed to be incorporated into creative writing units at any stage in the revision process. Prepares students to revise their own descriptions (Part 2).
Includes Lesson Delivery instructions for teacher and print-ready handouts to practice turning "tell" descriptions into sensory "show" descriptions.
INCLUDES 2 VERSIONS OF HANDOUT: One is differentiated with more examples provided and modified directions for students who may need more support or are English Language Learners.
Part 2, also available for download, looks similar but has the students revise descriptions from their own writing draft to "show" rather than "tell".
