Are you looking for a way to prepare your students for the tasks on the PARCC without stopping everything to teach to the test? Look no further!
This product allows you to embed the skill of narrative writing into the teaching of Fahrenheit 451, specifically after the reading of Part 2 - "The Sieve & the Sand."
This product not only introduces students to the types of prompts they will be exposed to on the test, it affords you the opportunity to teach them so much more, such as plot structure by having students outline their own stories using the basic plot conventions of an exposition, rising actions, climax, falling actions, and resolution. It also addresses the plot device of point of view and allows students to see how a stories perspective or tone can change through manipulating point of view. It also gives your students a chance to study the author's use of language and how those literary devices effect the reader and reveal insights on both plot and character. And finally, narrative writing gives your students the chance to be creative in their writing, when they are often confined to the formal style of an analytic, argumentative, or research essay.
