Actions Speak Louder than Words

Students explore idea development and word choice in writing through character development. In this writing lesson, the students create a character description using the idea development exemplified in the book Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech. Students focus on their word choice as they develop a character sketch that uses actions to help the reader make inferences about unique traits the character exhibits.

The lessons are so well laid out and comprehensive, it is a delight to be able to plug them in to my curriculum. Working within an alternative school, I need to provide my students with clear and specific information, links, and directions. Lesson Planet helps me find it all. Thank you so much!
