Introduction

Descriptive text is a text that explains about whether a person or an object is like, whether its form, its properties, its amount and others. The purpose of the descriptive text is clear, that is to describe, represent or reveal a person or an object, either abstract or concrete. The purpose of a descriptive essay is also to inform the reader on a particular topic, event, or experience.

Task

You will create a descriptive text and then create a video from that descriptive text. Follow this "process" that webquest provides. I hope you can enjoy this assignment to explore knowledge.

Process

Step 1: SELECT A TOPIC

A good starting point for many students is to ask them to write about something that is very personal to them.

Step 2 : WRITE A THESIS STATEMENT

The thesis statement lays out the specific purpose of the text and usually it is embedded in the introductory paragraph.

Step 3 : EVOKE THE SUBJECT’S ESSENCE

Encourage students to employ literary devices such as simile, metaphor, and personification to bring their sensory descriptions to life. This can also be a great opportunity to reinforce student understanding of the various literary devices themselves.

Step 4 : CREATE AN OUTLINE

Students have selected an engaging topic, produced a solid thesis statement, and gathered together lots of relevant sensory detail, you’ll need to create a clear outline to organize and inform the writing process.
