Live Action Exercise
1-page PDF of a class exercise that helps students understand how to describe emotions. This is a bonus sheet that is included only in this bundle.
Showing vs. Telling: Powerpoint Lesson
This 28-slide presentation teaches the difference between showing and telling in writing. It covers what they are, why and when each is used, and tricks for adding more “showing” elements. The lesson can be spread among 2 or more days to prevent overload.
Show, Don’t Tell: Writing Prompts
16 writing prompts provide students practice with “Show, Don’t Tell.” 7 require vivid paragraphs, and 9 call for descriptions of emotions. The first 5 emotion prompts have examples in the Notes section of the presentation.
