Here is a high interest PowerPoint lesson to teach narrative writing and prepare students for narrative writings that are required to the PARCC and other state tests. Students will watch a video based on Star Wars
The Force Awakens and will be prompted to pay attention to the story elements in the trailer. Using those elements, students will write the next scene of the movie based on the elements discussed in class. Students will be instructed not to write the scene from the actual movie but rather to take the perspective of another character and write a new scene. Web sites and teacher instructions for executing the lesson are provided on the PowerPoint.
