Showing How to Deal
with Anger

self-reflecting on a time the writer was angry while exploring details and voice


Student Writer Instructions:

In When Sophie Gets Angry---Really, Really Angry…, Molly Bang shows us how Sophie handles a time when she was so mad that she felt like a volcano about to explode. Think about a time when you were really angry. What caused your anger? Sometimes a person hurts your feelings or treats you disrespectfully, and your anger builds the longer you think about the situation. Sometimes a situation occurs where you feel instantly angry---a quick burning. Was your anger slow burning or quick burning? Be sure that your reader can see you and the scene in his mind’s eye. How was the situation resolved?

To start, press the first button below to choose a possible anger-induced scenario. Look through the entire list of scenarios by clicking the button over and over. If one of the scenarios works for you, feel free to use it as is. If one of the scenarios reminds you of a time when you were really angry, feel free to change the scenario to match your own story.

The second button gives you choices for words to describe your anger. Press that button over and over until you find the words that best show how you felt.
