Mining For Descriptive Gold

Learners describe places using language that is as vivid as possible. They will examine the writer's craft in describing a place by reading and discussing "Resurrecting the Miner's World." They will then revise their descriptive pieces using the article as a model. Students exchange papers and draw the place that one of their classmates has described.
