Deepening the student's understanding of narrative writing is the target of this slideshow. The important characteristics of narrative writing are addressed as is a way to put together important components of their composition. It lends itself to opening discussions of the steps taken as they write. It is illustrated and paced so as to engage and focus their attention to the main points.
It can serve as an introduction, review, and checklist. It can be used whole and small group as well as individually. Additionally it can help parents' understanding of the writing process. I have used it to introduce as well as review each time we begin a new narrative.
