PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a perfect way to open your writing unit at the beginning of the year. In my middle school classroom, we do our first writing unit on narrative, and students are always hesitant to write about themselves. This lesson is an excellent way of helping students feel comfortable to write by reading an autobiographical passage about an author's real experiences - both positive and negative - with becoming a writer. Students are invited to consider their own experiences and address their inner "watcher".

While this lesson is designed to get at student motivation, it also includes important academic skills. Students will read a nonfiction passage, annotate the text, respond to questions using textual evidence for support, and engage in two freewrites. The lesson includes learning objectives and Common Core State Standards, detailed instructional sequence, and a handout that includes all resources needed.
