Narrative writing is usually quite a popular unit with most students. It is here that they can put together everything they have learned about writing. Ideas, word choice, using connections, and developing a voice are all part of the narrative writing scaffolding.
If you used last month’s unit on author studies and the introduction to “voice” your students will have spent some time learning about voice. They practiced by mimicking that author. You can check out that post here. Even if you did not use the previous unit to teach voice, your students will learn more in-depth about voice and how it can relate to a mood and tone.
