This packet will hone your students' creative writing skills with activities that are designed to allow each writer to draw upon his or her unique background of experiences. Your students will learn to "show, not tell" as they write about their favorite music, memories, and more. Ideas for sharing and extending writing across the curriculum are included. Writers are encouraged to use the steps of the writing process discussed in the Guide to the Writing Process. A proofreading checklist and Holistic Writing Evaluation form are included.
