Writing Unit Three
For our third unit of writing, we will be returning to narrative (story) writing. Students will need to be able to construct a well-organized story including the elements of character, setting, problem, and resolution. To fit in with our Reading unit on Historical Fiction, students will be challenged to write stories about a historical event with their own invented characters. While this is encouraged, students are allowed to write regular narratives as well.
Students will be assessed on their writing using the narrative writing rubric attached and on the below “I can” statements on their SLABs.
