Story Imagery Study Guide
In this lesson, you'll discover how authors choose words to create pictures in your mind.
IMAGERY IS THE use of words to help readers visualize, or create pictures in their minds, of people, places, and events in a story. Authors choose words that appeal to readers' five senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. See the chart on the following page for some examples.
Visualizing helps you connect with the text by picturing things you already know. That, in turn, helps you better remember what you read. A word web like this one can help you organize details as you visualize characters, settings, or events.
