The exercises in this lesson show students that describing a person in their writing can be much more than a list of details. A good description needs to have context and a point—in order to create a written "picture" of the person being described. Includes examples of good descriptions from published writers, as well as exercises such as "The Suspects" that lead students to make their written "people pictures" compelling and vivid!
