A Step-by-step Guide to Descriptive Writing
This guide to descriptive writing helps students discover their inner voice and then translate their discoveries into an effectively written piece. Students are encouraged to gather and organize their ideas by using a variety of methods and to improve bland writing by using figurative language, adjectives, adverbs, synonyms, and antonyms. Language basics, such as how to improve sentence and paragraph structure; how to make verbs, pronouns, and tenses agree; and how to vary sentence styles are discussed. Finally, students learn how to proofread and edit their work before making a final presentation.
