Narrative Writing: A Writer’s Workshop for Common Core

The perfect writer’s workshop for teaching narrative writing! This writer’s workshop is broken down into small, manageable steps which will keep your students engaged and excited.

This workshop begins with six “Toolbox” Lessons. These are stand-alone craft lessons that support the skills necessary for writing strong narratives, as well as the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Students will explore:

• plot structure
• using transition words
• developing internal conflict
• using strong verbs
• punctuating dialogue
• the importance of a strong opening

(Answer keys are included when necessary!!)

Next, they generate ideas for their narratives. Lessons included:

• writing about “treasures”
• writing about “memorable moments”
• writing about “everyday adventures”

Finally, they will draft, revise, and edit. Included you will find:

• Teacher-and-Student Conferencing Guide
• Peer Conferencing Guide
• Self-Conferencing Guide
• Editor’s Checklist
• Scoring Rubric

I’ve also included Common Core alignment for grades 4-8 and a Lesson Plan Calendar to show how I break down these 4+ weeks of teaching.
