This colorful flipchart will take your students through a gradual release lesson on how to improve their writing through the use of specific words. Stronger writing will aid interest and allow the reader to see what we choose them to see. First, students will be given reasoning and asked to explain why we want to use specific words. Next, students will practice finding stronger words to improve vaguely written passages. Finally, students will be given a prompt to write about what they did last weekend. Students should make specific word choices when completing the prompt.
