Scaffolding Descriptive writing

  1. 1. Dr. Magda Enriquez Beitler
  2. 2.  To make an imaginary world seem real, an author often makes use of words and phrases that appeal to the senses. These words and phrases, are called images, and help a reader mentally experience what the characters in the literary selection are actually experiencing.  A well-written description should arouse a particular response or emotion in the reader's imagination.
  3. 3. SmellSmell
  4. 4.  The hot July sun beat relentlessly down, casting an orange glare over the farm buildings, the fields, the pond. Even the usually cool green willows bordering the pond hung wilted and dry. Our sun-baked backs ached for relief. We quickly pulled off our sweaty clothes and plunged into the pond, but the tepid water only stifled us and we soon climbed onto the brown, dusty bank. Our parched throats longed for something cool--a strawberry ice, a tall frosted glass of lemonade.
  5. 5.  Write a fully descriptive paragraph!!
