Reading A-Z resources organized into weekly content-based units and differentiated instruction options.
Narrative Writing Lessons teach students to entertain through written stories. The narrative genre
includes many text types, including adventure, fairy tale, fantasy, historical fiction, mystery,
personal narrative, realistic fiction, or science fiction. Writing A-Z's narrative writing lessons
provide the resources teachers need to help students create original fiction and nonfiction stories.
Narratives help students understand the different parts of a story—beginning, middle, and ending—and
often include elements such as characters, settings, and problems and solutions.
Narrative process writing gives students the tools to create original stories with imagination
and creativity, write about events or experiences in their own lives, and develop plots with
strong openings (or introductions) and satisfying closings (or conclusions) with descriptive
details in between.
Narrative process writing lessons take approximately two weeks, have six parts, and begin with
teaching and modeling the writing process for the whole class.
Leveled expectations in the sidebars of each lesson along with printable and projectable samples
and graphic organizers help you support students at each of the four developmental writing
levels. Whether students are beginning, early developing, developing, or fluent, a single lesson
plan with differentiated support materials help you provide support for the range of students'
needs in your classroom.
Guidelines at the end of each lesson help students independently
apply what they have learned.
Some process writing lessons have digital practice that walks students through each step of the
writing process for some text types. When they use this online tool, students can create
original compositions that they submit to your online In Basket for grading.
