Power Point is 16 slides explaining what a narrative essay is, components it should contain, what a "hook" is, suggestions for a hook, and the grading criteria (each component broken down on 4 point scale).
The grading criteria is in a 4-point rubric style for these categories: development; organization; word choice; story elements; suspense & foreshadowing; grammar, usage, & mechanics
This narrative assignment is perfect for October, around Halloween.
After taking students through writing process, they present their final stories to the class while we eat S'mores! (Yes, you can make them on a griddle!!)
I also have a printable rubric product available for this assignment.
