This comprehensive, 24-lesson, 200+ page unit has everything you need to empower your students to speak their stories, find their voice, and create something they're proud to share.

Perfect as a first unit of the year, or any other time of the year, this unit will not just push your students to expand some of the trickiest narrative writing skills, but bring your class together.

The unit is in Writing Workshop style, with creative ideas for 10-15 minute mini-lessons, 25-30 minutes of work time, and 5 minutes of share time each day. The model is backed by decades of research on teaching writing, and one that's been incredibly successful in my own classroom.
