Product Description
Lessons That Create Writers are exactly what their name denotes: writing lessons that will help turn your students into bonafide writers! This fifth mini-unit in the series, Crafting a Perfect Plot, will teach your middle schoolers about each of the five parts of plot (exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution) and how to craft engaging plotlines for future writing pieces. Through direct instruction, guided practice, and independent practice, students will explore each of the five parts of plot and then use what they learned to write a plotline for a future story. Then, through sharing and reflection, as well as formative assessment, students will solidify what they learned about crafting a perfect plot for their writing pieces.

Included in this product:

• a detailed lesson plan
• a PowerPoint to use during instruction
• worksheets and notes for students to use during the lesson
• an interactive foldable organizer for students to include in their notes
• an exit ticket to use as a formative assessment
• Common Core alignment for grades 6-8

These lessons are stand alone and a perfect supplement to any middle school writing curriculum.

You can also use this lesson as part of a reading/literature class to teach about the five parts of plot!

(And on a personal note… I love to use these lessons when I am getting observed by a supervisor or administrator, as they provide lots of opportunity for you to demonstrate how well you can provide direct instruction, facilitate guided instruction, support independent practice, and close a lesson with reflection and formative assessment!)
