During this class, students will learn, practice and apply the "Show, Don't Tell" descriptive writing strategy. This strategy encourages students to elaborate and revise their writing by including details that help a reader to visualize their writing rather than using simple sentences. For example, "My sister was mad because I ate her cake" simply states (or "tells") the reader that the character was feeling mad. In this class, we will introduce the strategy, "SHOW, Don't Tell" to improve...
1. Students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the "Show, Don't Tell" writing strategy using dialogue, sound, adjectives, mood/feeling, and sensory details. 2. Students will be able to REVISE existing sentences using "Show, Don't Tell" to elaborate and improve the sentence. 3. Students will be able to APPLY the "Show, Don't Tell" strategy to craft their own detailed sentences/short pieces.
Students may open a second tab during class to type their writing during practice sections of this class. However, if they prefer, they will need paper and a writing utensil to write.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
