Reflection: Student Ownership Revising Of Personal Narratives For Details and Mind Pictures - Section 3: Revising Practice


By the time students come to eighth grade, they have heard the term sensory details and mind pictures plenty of times. It it is one of those concepts that is constantly drilled into them. While this is an important concept to use when writing, I think it's important to make sure students use it effectively.

I found this activity proves to be successful as students are able to take ownership of the details they want to use. As students are working on these details, I can meet with them and it helps them to see what details are effective and which ones are not.
