About This Lesson

This is a fun handout that asks students the difference between "showing" and "telling." I like to have a contest and have the class vote on who wrote the best "showing" paragraph. Students have fun with this, especially trying to describe "the girl blew her nose." That gets kind of gross, but fun!

Excellent skill builder! This lesson really helped my students learn how to utilize poetic devices in their writing.
