Good writing

A key concept in good writing = “show don’t tell”

Examples of “telling”:

Tom was mad.

It was a pretty crummy place.

It was a great game.Slide9

Showing

We can “show” more effectively by adding to/elaborating upon:

Action

Dialogue

D

escription

“Good writing makes the reader see” HandoutSlide10

Let’s try this as a group

I

t

was a pretty crummy place.

As a class we need to decide what kind of place we’re talking about (house, building, particular locale?)

Each person needs provide one specific detail that will add to this description

Lets build a description together!Slide11

Look back at your bell work from today and yesterday

Find an example where you’re doing a great job of showing – highlight the sentence in yellow

Find an example where you’re telling – revise it!

Let’s share some great examples of showing! Pick a sentence or two!Slide12
