This lesson plan includes all components: Teaching Point, Rationale, Standards, Motivation, Teaching, Active Engagement, Link, and Share, as well as pictures of the anchor charts that can be used during the lesson and to hang in the classroom. There are also materials to print out to use when making the charts, as well as pages to print for students to use during the active engagement portion. This lesson can be used during the personal narrative unit of study, or during a fictional writing unit. It is an excellent plan for a formal or informal observation. If you are using the Lucy Calkins Crafting True Stories Unit it can be interjected at any point. It can be used in grades 2-5 and modified accordingly.
