This is a complete 2 week unit that walks your class through the writing process and then leads them through each step of the process while they each complete their own personal narrative about a special place using effective writing techniques. These techniques include: bold beginning, "colorful words", figurative language, vivid details, imagery, sensory details using the five senses, and varying sentence lengths.
This powerpoint was created using Microsoft Powerpoint 2010. It includes Day #'s on the top of each slide to pace you through the teaching of the unit. Students will have written and published their piece after 12-14 days. Includes a link to a Pow Toon about the writing process, images, practice assignment, think/pair activities, and an example of a complete narrative about a special place.
This powerpoint addresses the CC writing standards of using the writing process to strengthen pieces, using figurative language, and writing a personal narrative using the writing process using effective techniques. This is an objective in many upper el. grades such as 4-6.
