This unit focuses on teaching organization in narrative writing. This unit uses a variety of strategies including teacher modeling, partner/group work, independent revisions, and class discussion. There are two lessons that focus on creating "Beautiful Beginnings" and "Excellent Endings." A cue card for students to keep as a personal anchor chart is also included. The cue card also gives the basics of a "Mighty Middle."
Time: 2 lessons, 40-60 min. each (This inlcudes time for students to write and revise.)
