I’ve always loved writing, so it has consistently been surprising to me when I meet people who loathe it. It was during one of my college education courses that I found a potential reason for this. During my middle school years, I had the privilege of seeing writing as a fun, creative opportunity through my teacher’s use of the writing workshop. Therefore, it was obvious to me when I became a teacher that I needed to use that structure in my classroom.
This writing workshop unit can be used specifically for writing personal narratives. The unit provides a structure explanation for writing workshop as well as handouts used to follow that structure.
