After analyzing various narrative techniques in Unit 1A, students will use that knowledge to compose a narrative in which they develop real experiences and events. Writing a processed narrative offers a great opportunity to go through the writing process. In teaching the concepts of narrative techniques, students will look at mentor texts in order to see how other writers use dialogue, sensory detail, pacing, and reflection in order to develop the experience. Structured activities will help students brainstorm, plan, draft, revise, edit, and rewrite a narrative.
