In the Google Slideshow, you will find anchor charts and digital "writer's notebook pages" that you can use to instruct and model your own writing. You can also make copies of the slideshow for individual students to type into, to support them in building a portfolio of personal narratives.

You will also get Canva templates and blank images so that you can customize these resources and use them in any platform, with any language.

These resources will guide you and your students to:

  • Generate ideas for personal narratives using an anchor chart of five narrative generating strategies
  • Choose and narrow down a "seed idea" that has significance and deserves to be brought to publication/sharing
  • Plan using a story mountain that helps to angle the story in such a way as to uncover its significance, meaning, and importance

You will get the editable Canva templates so that you can modify the images and/or language to suit your specific needs.
