Mimic the Masters

J.K. Rowling. Suzanne Collins. John Green. Use the heavy-hitters of YA literature to inspire your students to polish their own prose. After rough drafts of the first large writing assignment of the year are completed, I present a 45-minute lesson where I break down six specific techniques used by skilled writers and share examples from the best-selling novels my students love.

Six skills are taught, including:
Adjectives shifted out of order
Vivid verbs
Similes and Metaphors

This lesson provides concrete, effective tips your teens can immediately apply to their writing. Click here to improve the power and flow of your students’ words.
