Our Narrative Writing Pt. 1 (Personal Narratives) lesson plan introduces students to writing personal narratives. The lesson provides instruction and suggestions to help students think of ideas and add details to their own stories. Beginning with this sort of writing allows students to make a personal connection with the assignment, which will allow them to develop their personal style and voice. Students are asked to use their creativity to develop and write a personal narrative story from start to finish.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify the elements to create a strong personal narrative. Students will have moved through the steps of brainstorming, rough draft, editing, and final draft to create a personal narrative.
