Hold the Presses!: Revising for Connotation

Young scholars discuss the meaning of the sentence, The student asked to go to the office." Ask the class if the sentence gives the reader any information about the student. Can they visualize the way the student asked the question? Point out that the sentence is rather bland, without any vivid language to visualize the scene." They ask questons, and the teacher writes a new version of the sentences on the board to describe the method the question was asked.
