The Short Story Writing Unit presents to students all the things that go into making a short story.
This unit was written specifically for students in grades 6, 7, 8 but can easily be adapted to younger and older grades. The unit is divided into four 1-week segments. Times can also be adjusted for each introduction, lesson, activity, share and write time to better suit your classroom. Best not to eliminate any of steps though. Students will learn the concepts much better if each of these steps is followed. I wish you great success and great writing!
This is Unit One of three units on the writing process.
Unit One: The Short Story Writing Unit
Unit Two: The Essay Writing Unit
Unit Three: The Free Verse Writing Unit
