All teachers would love students to elaborate more in their writing. The Big Book of Details by Roslyn Linder is an amazing resource that addresses this issue. The book includes 46 moves for teaching writers to elaborate.
This resource compliments Chapter 4: Details That Convince: Opinions, Persuasion, and Arguments. Twenty-two pages, in both color and black and white, are included. Each page contains an anchor chart for the elaboration strategies. Find a chart for If...Then, Opposite Side, Good Question, Imagine This, Very Complicated, Now and Then, We The People, and Call To Action. Your writers will have an individual anchor chart available for reference or use it in your Teacher's Toolkit as you conference with small groups of writers.
Be sure to find my anchor charts for all other strategies.
Details That Describe: People, Places, Mood, Emotions, and Things
Details That Dance: Showing Action and Sequence of Events
