Product Description
A short, easy lesson that introduces students to the concept of "show, don't tell" when writing descriptions. Focuses on how to describe emotions through physical descriptions and concrete thoughts. Students come up with their own examples as well as analyze a short excerpt from Sandra Cisnero's vignette "Eleven."

I did this lesson with a 9th grade class but they were ESL students who didn't really have any experience with creative writing. The activity is probably better suited to 7th graders.
