Welcome to Projectable Lessons from The Writing Diner! Teach your students how to get details into a piece of writing. This lesson focuses on using similes as one powerful way to get quality details into student writing. It simply, explicitly, and clearly teaches students what a simile is and how to think about using them in pieces of writing. The lesson includes a writing sample so that students can see how writers think to include similes while writing. This straightforward, simple lesson will be an important step in helping students to add details to their work and to also help them to become active thinkers while independently writing. The lesson is connected to the book, The Writing Diner, by Tim Hargis.
