This unit is a continuation of the Personal Narrative Prewriting unit.
This unit lasts about three weeks. It guides students through the revising, sharing, and final draft stages. It incorporates some Thinking Maps and loosely follows the MAISA unit.
It includes lessons about similes and metaphors, zooming in on details, beginning with a hook, ending with closure, proofreading, sharing, and final revisions.
I hope you like it as much as my students did. Repeatedly, students told me that they couldn't believe that they could write as well as they did.
