This is an 11-page short story unit in which students are tasked with developing an unique, 1st person narrative voice that takes risks with perspective and voice. The download includes a 1-page overview of the assignment itself, including draft deadlines, prompt specifics, tips for narrative writing, and additional requirements; a 2-page handout providing narrative style tips paragraph structure, use of dialogue, attributions, verb tense consistency, and showing-not telling-the story; a 5-page model story displaying the unique perspective of a weary mother of two teens; a 2-page peer evaluation form for in-class assessment of preliminary drafts; and a 1-page teacher evaluation for summative assessment of the final draft.
