Can the written word outdo a movie? Yes! Why? Because most movies cannot go beyond the senses of sight and sound. Words, unlike movies, can help us delve into all five senses. This lesson features several strategies to help students make sense (and scents) of their writing!
• Senses in Books (examples of writing that is rich with sensory detail)
• Sensory Options (direct sensory input, action senses)
• Sensory Writing Exercises
• Fiction Sense vs. Nonfiction Sense
