Taking Off

There is nothing more real for some children than being torn between mom and dad and the world of divorce. Learners read a touching story about a girl between families, they analyze how the author used descriptive language to show rather than tell how the child was feeling. They then compose, peer edit, and revise a descriptive narrative of their own. The story and teacher's notes are attached.
