Why Lesson Planet?
Offer your class methods for understanding and creating setting in a written work. Much of the focus here is on fluency, so class members spend a good amount of time simply writing about places that are significant to them, and describing the setting using descriptive language. Learners also examine Mark Twain's writing to develop an idea of how he creates setting and a sense of place. This resource details a list of setting descriptions that you might read to your class as examples.
