My students are learning the elements of a personal narrative. I recently updated this lesson to match how I am currently teaching this type of writing. Students use a graphic organizer for sensory details before writing their draft. They develop their account using these details.
I also added a rubric for easy grading.
I teach in a diverse neighborhood and having students share a part of their culture and family experiences builds community.
