These are five lesson plans for the writing process using descriptive writing. This engaging unit takes students through the stages of writing from start to finish, by developing and refining their own ideas into a well published final product. Descriptive Writing is a means of expressing one's environment through the perceptions of his senses. Sight, smell, touch, sound and taste, are used to vividly describe the environment so that the author can transport the reader into his environment. It is compulsory that a child is taught the necessary skills to develop a good descriptive story structure, which will improve their writing skills across the curriculum as well as develop their self-esteem and promote literacy.
