Rethink narrative writing by asking students to only write short paragraphs that center around one word. Each word follows the ABC book style. This asks students to stretch their imaginations and find words that describe them or their lives that they might not normally choose. Afterward, students are left with a great book they can keep.
Included in this project are:
~Student brainstorming sheet
~Score sheet/grading rubric for teacher
~Cover for student ABC book
~ABC pages (2 letters per page).
*This could easily be adapted for students to create PowerPoint presentations, web pages, videos, etc.
