These are my lesson plans for a writing unit on realistic fiction.
All lessons are written in a mini-lesson format and the plans follow components of the Danielson Framework.
The outline for the unit is as follows (although I spent multiple days on some):
1. gather ideas
2. plan characters and setting
3. plan problem
4. plan the sequence of events
5. plan the solution
6. plan details to describe the characters
7. begin drafting with temporal words
8. add details
9. add dialogue
11. edit for capitals and punctuation
12. edit for spelling
All lesson plans include the following components: unit, lesson topic, objective (written in the “Today I will __ so that I can __. I’ll know I’ve got it when __.” format), Common Core Learning Standards, materials, vocabulary, motivation/connection, learning plan, higher order thinking questions, assessment, differentiation, closure, and reinforce and extend learning.
I included some examples of pieces of my own story in these plans, but these plans are editable so feel free to change anything you wish! I did include my own story at the end if you would like to use it at your example also. I did NOT include the graphic organizers that I used for this lesson. I simply purchased generic graphic organizers for story elements, sequencing, etc. of varying amounts and difficulty levels. I will include my graphic organizers in my future units’ lessons.
