This workshop is geared for educators in grades 2-8, responsible for teaching narrative writing and for engaging students in response to narrative stories and literature. Besides learning how to teach the key narrative writing skills, participants will receive practical techniques for response to text tasks. Skills for generative and responsive writing will include:

  • establish a strong reading-writing connection to maximize interaction with text and improve comprehension
  • recognizing the characteristics of narrative texts: character/problem/solution, personal experience, imaginative, realistic fiction
  • generating entertaining beginnings, relevant, vivid elaborative detail, suspense, fully-elaborated main events, and satisfying extended story endings
  • understanding key literary elements: theme, point of view, tone, plot, voice, conflict, motivation
  • responding to literature by writing about story theme, point of view, tone, plot, voice, conflict, motivation

The required resource for this workshop is the New Grade Level Narrative Guide, available in print or digitally with a license to the Hub.
