In this lesson plan, which is adaptable for grades 6-12, students use BrainPOP resources to explore the difference between writing that “shows” and writing that “tells” and articulate an author’s purpose for choosing to “show.” Students will also analyze descriptive language and sensory detail for implied messages regarding mood and/or theme. They will then apply the show-not-tell writing technique to their own creative writing in order to achieve a clear goal.
