Do you students have difficulty understanding how to write showing how characters feel in a story rather than telling you how they feel?
Through a number of examples, this power point is designed to help students understand the difference between telling what is happening in a story showing their reader what is happening in a story.
Telling - Jerry felt scared waiting in line to go on the roller coaster.
Showing - Jerry was trembling and biting his nails as he waited in line to go on the roller coaster.
This presentation gives examples of showing sentences, partner talk time for discussing how to change a telling sentence into a showing sentence, as well as some independent practice.
Please let me know if you come across any typos or issues. I have read and reread items many times. But sometimes I miss something. If there is an error, I will promptly correct it!
