Think Like An Author: Hemingway vs Dickens

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships through September 30th, 2022. Join today!


Students will study the styles of Dickens and Hemingway and then try to write like them.


  1. First, students analyze the writing of Hemingway and Dickens. What makes their styles different?
  2. Next, they'll re-write Dickens in Hemingway's style.
  3. Now, they re-write Hemingway using Dickens' style.
  4. I share my final example.


The registration window closes on September 30th, 2022

Teachers love Byrdseed.TV!

"I just subscribed to Byrdseed.TV and am loving it -- though it is kind of scary addictive in a binge-watching kind of way (that, by the way, is a compliment)."  ~  Elizabeth from Florida

"I LOVE these videos. It's like having two teachers in my classroom."  ~  Kristi in Ohio

"I absolutely LOVE all of the ideas on your site. I am using Byrdseed TV to differentiate activities for my clustered students to work on when the rest of the class is doing something they’ve already mastered."  ~  Wendy in Washington
