This workshop is geared for educators in grades 2-8, responsible for teaching narrative writing and for engaging students in literary analysis tasks 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:

  • establishing a strong reading-writing connection
  • recognizing the characteristics of narrative texts: character/problem/solution, personal experience, imaginative, realistic fiction
  • understanding key literary elements: theme, point of view, tone, plot, voice, conflict, motivation
  • writing entertaining beginnings
  • generating relevant, vivid elaborative detail
  • building suspense
  • developing fully-elaborated main events
  • crafting satisfying extended story endings
  • responding to literature by writing about story theme, point of view, tone, plot, voice, conflict, motivation
  • engaging in narrative extension tasks by assuming another point of view, alternate setting, or ending

The required resource for this workshop is the New Grade Level Narrative Guide.

Registrations with a printed guide after Feb. 4th will be shipped to the school upon receiving payment. Handouts will be used at the workshop.
