Details, Details, Details

This Details, Details, Details lesson plan also includes:

Writing can become one-dimensional if authors don't involve all their senses. First, scholars observe a strange object which, ideally, they can touch and even smell. Without using certain words (you can create a list or have the class come up with overused words), they use their senses to paint a picture of the item. Next, writers respond to a fun prompt, crafting a novel set-up using themselves as the protagonist! After sharing, learners complete a worksheet (not included, but easily found online) and examine figurative langauge. Finally, they work on their own novels.
