PREPARATION

This lesson is designated as a recurring lesson because it focuses on a writing skill that should be practiced throughout the year. Once students complete the examples provided in this lesson, be sure to compile additional practice exercises so students can continue to hone their skills over time. You may choose to use examples from students’ actual writing, with or without identification of the author.

In addition, consider having students visit Descriptive Writing With Virginia Hamilton to try some exercises outside of class.

  1. Provide each student with a Show-Me Sentences Handout.

  2. Write the following sentence on the board, “The car lands awkwardly, causing it to roll.”
