Mrs. Grelch vs. Mrs. Buttersweet
In today’s lesson, students were considering the technique of “showing, not telling.” Writers use this technique to show their characters through their actions, rather than explicitly describing them to the reader. This way, the reader can create an image of the character in their head.
Keesha and Emilie both choose to portray different characters during today’s writing task. Keesha opted for the rather nasty Mrs. Grelch, while Emilie chose the kinder Mrs. Buttersweet. To my surprise, they decided to weave their stories together by placing the same event in each story, told from different perspectives. Excellent work, girls!
