This 40-slide PowerPoint is a step-by-step presentation that teaches students about using exact, interesting words in their writing.
There are four main sections in this PowerPoint:
1. Using EXACT words in our writing
2. Using INTERESTING words in our writing
3. Using a THESAURUS to improve word choice (I stress that not ALL words are interchangeable. You have to consider the context of the entire sentence in order to choose an appropriate synonym.
4. Putting it all together: Revising an entire paragraph for word choice
There are numerous practice slides.
THIS POWERPOINT INCLUDES A COMPANION WORKSHEET. STUDENTS CAN RECORD THEIR ANSWERS AS THEY FOLLOW ALONG ON THEIR OWN WORKSHEET!
Check out the preview! (But remember, the preview is in a PDF format, and the product is truly an interactive PowerPoint with full animation.)
This PowerPoint is fully animated so that you only advance when the teacher clicks the mouse.
