Third Six Weeks Homework
By Donald Howard
Sensory Language is writing that describes a subject using the five senses; touch, smell, sound, taste, and sight, in order to create a vivid image. An example of sensory language would be:
The cool summer breeze rolled over the green hills. The aroma of fresh cut grass filled the air as I sat sipping sweet iced lemonade.
Mood is the atmosphere the author creates to invoke feelings in the reader.
These pictures can also cause you to feel certain way similar to what a good author does.
Plot Development is how the story progresses through the Exposition, Rising Action, to the Climax, then Falling Action and finally the Resolution.
Character development is how the character changes or grows through out the story. An example of character development is when a character may start out selfish then by the end of the story they learn a lesson and begin sharing.
Brainstorming takes place before the organizer to think of a story.
The Outline is the basic plot of your story that has the main events that take place in each paragraph and how the characters react to the event.
Revising and Editing
Revising and editing is done after you finish your rough draft. You reread you draft and correct grammar errors and spelling before typing your final copy.
