This is it! This product contains the narrative essay outline that has transformed my students' narrative essays from boring to jazzy. I now look forward to reading their stories because they are interesting, funny, and creative. I've used this outline for the past 5 years and it has completely changed the quality of the narratives I receive. This product contains the outline and a sample essay that follows the pattern. If you would like even more of how I teach this unit, visit my store for the complete packet I use with my students. This product is a game changer and a sanity saver since you'll actually enjoy reading their stories.
