PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This set of activities (I do one a day with my students) requires students to analyze a passage from one of the two memoirs, Knots in My Yo-Yo String, by Jerry Spinelli, or Looking Back, by Lois Lowry. After analyzing for a specific writing technique, students then practice using it in their own writing.

My students were required to write personal narratives on our standardized test this year, and I saw tremendous growth in their writing after completing this series of tasks.
