Are your student essays as bland and lifeless as a rice cake?
Teach them how to add FAT to their essays with Figurative language, Appositive phrases, and Transition words. These techniques will ensure your student’s voices will add spice to those flavorless essays.
From my presentation packet:
This workshop will provide detailed lessons for teachers to empower student writers with concrete tools to help them improve word choice and voice in their writing. Through these lessons, students will learn how to harness proven writing techniques discovered in mentor texts during the drafting and revision stages of the writing process.
