product is a set of 10 writing prompts that highlight narrative writing in first and third person format. Each prompt provides a setting, main character, and conflict. This allows the students to use the prompt in their introduction and then create a rising action, climax, falling action, and conclusion. We also provide a range of brainstorm maps, student editing checklist, final draft templates, and a grading rubric.
All worksheets are offered in color and black & white.
