Product Description
This is a collection of resources to teach how to write a recount or récit. A récit is the retelling of a series of important events, explained in order. It can be fiction or non-fiction writing. Many of my photos show recounts I wrote about my own life. (You’ll read about M. Priest, my husband.) They can serve as inspiration for you to write your own recounts. I have included teaching tips, examples of recounts I have modelled, and posters to explain

• The basic structure of a recount
• How to teach the introduction or the topic sentence
• How to add details
• How to write an effective conclusion

The printables I have included are

• A reference sheet for students that can be included in a writing folder
• A summative assessment based on the book series Monsieur/Madame (fiction)
• A general template for writing a récit
• An evaluation rubric

You could adapt this work for younger students by leaving out the introduction and conclusion. Students in older grades can be challenged by writing non-fiction such as newspaper articles or the explanation of a science experiement, or fiction that integrates Social Studies and History. For example, a First Nations man living in the 1800’s could explain how to build a shelter.
