Today we are going to learning how to write using 'show not tell ' emotions, to make our writing more interesting for the reader.
Task 1: READ
Read to the end of chapter 13 (Deciphering the message) in The City of Ember.
Think about how the characters and feeling now. How does the author SHOW us and not TELL us? See if you can find some examples in the text.
TASK 2: PRESENTATION
Look through the presentation below and learn about show not tell emotions and why authors choose to do this. Then, have a go at trying to make some sentences more interesting by using show not tell emotions yourself.
