In this lesson unit, the narrative writing process is presented in six graphic organizers which assist students in creating an original story with a clear beginning, middle, and end. Students also work on realistic characters and setting.
The entire unit is posted in three installments titled:
Narrative Writing Unit Lesson 1: The Basics, Narrative Writing Unit Lesson 2: Characters and Setting, and Narrative Writing Unit Lesson 3: Sequencing your Story.
This unit is tailored to the 6th grade common core writing standards. However, since these standards are nearly identical for grades 6-8 and built upon in 9-10, this unit could be adapted for a wide range of student levels. The standard addressed is listed at the bottom of the each worksheet.
