Details make a scene or character vivid and bring your readers into the story. Showing creates a sense of being there. Telling interprets a scene for the readers.
In your initial discussion, play with showing vs. telling. Find a paragraph of descriptive writing and replace the details with generalizations. Post the original version and your generalized revision.
Post your initial discussion (at least 250-300 words) response by the fifth day of the module week. After you have posted, return to the discussion and read several of your classmates’ responses. Respond to at least two postings. In your response, note the classmate’s word choices; showing vs. telling.
