Abigail Ferguson's lesson on structure and elements of fictional and nonfictional narratives gives students a chance to understand, make inferences and draw conclusions about the structure and elements of fictional and nonfictional writing. This is a great lesson for teaching students how to write fictional narratives as well as know differences between nonfictional and fictional narratives. The lesson includes a warm-up, an eleven page PowerPoint slide discussion for the class, two assignments, rubrics for the assignments and an elaboration lesson. This is a week long lesson. It can be used for either a gifted classroom or an integrated classroom with ESL students. This lesson coincides with Ferguson's other lesson, Elements of Plot Development, but can be used as a separate lesson.
