Do you need to teach writing? This is the answer: A guided writing course suitable for writing instructors, classroom teachers, and parents of homeschooled students in grades 3-8.
This nine-Workshop course makes the art of creating a personal narrative a step-by-step, stress-free process that is easy to teach — and easy for students to follow.
By the course’s end, each student will have a complete, revised personal narrative. They will have learned the characteristics of a personal narrative, studied how to write hooks and endings, used paragraphs and transitions, brainstormed sensory details, and given their narratives a thorough edit for both content and mechanics.
Two rubrics (one for content and one for mechanics), along with pages for specific feedback, are provided for the instructor.
Each Workshop also comes with a game or activity that ties in to the content of that Workshop.
This course is adaptable for the age/abilities of your students, as well as for length. Each Workshop should last 45 min-1 hour. The entire course can be completed in 2 weeks if followed every day, or over a six- to nine-week period if used as a weekly course.
