Product Description
Having trouble getting your students to expand their stories & narratives? Are they continually *telling* a scene, instead of zooming in to add suspense? My middle school students were having the same problems, which is why I created this multimedia PowerPoint. It uses animation and movie clips* to demonstrate to students the difference between telling a scene and showing one, and then uses discrete steps and color-coding to help students expand their own scenes. A practice activity is at the end.

I've used this in middle school, but during professional development shared it with elementary school teachers. A 1st grade teacher told me she was even able to use the concepts in her class too (although heavily modified). I've even used it with my 9th Graders when I taught them how to write a memoir.

The presentation will take about 30-40 minutes, but the activity ideally would be started *in class* so the information is still fresh.
