Product Description
These handouts contain information and passages adapted from After "The End": Teaching and Learning Creative Revision by Barry Lane.

If your students write bland, boring essays and creative assignments, these techniques are a great way to help them spice things up. There are 4 techniques:

--Snapshots: passages of descriptive, sensory detail (anything that can be experience physically)

--Thoughtshots: the inner thoughts and feelings of the character

--Exploded Moments: taking a short moment in time and slowing it down, adding description and emotion to connect with the reader

--Shrinking Time: taking a long, drawn-out passage and boiling it down to the most important details

I have included the following documents in this package:

--Snapshots & Thoughtshots handout with passage from Maniac Magee and 2 practice exercises

--Example web and writing with revision questions and inserted snapshots and thoughtshots

--Snapshots & Thoughtshots mini-handouts (3 per page) with a second practice exercise

--Example original and revised passage for second practice exercise

--Exploded Moments handout with example passages and practice exercise

--Shrinking Time handout with example passage from Charlotte's Web, 2 shrinking time practice exercises, and 1 overall practice exercise
