In this course participants will learn how to teach narrative writing to third, fourth, and fifth grade students, a requirement of the Common Core State Standards. 


About This Course

In this course participants will learn how to teach narrative writing to third, fourth and fifth grade students. In crafting their own piece of writing, teachers will move through stages of the writing process. Participants will learn through experience how to use picture books to get ideas for personal narrative, how to revise and how to edit in meaningful ways.  As this course is aligned with Common Core State Standards for narrative writing, teachers will come away with a plan for teaching students to write as expected by the Common Core. Teachers will develop a personal course portfolio that will consist of their own narratives, and their plans for implementing narrative writing in classrooms. During this course, participants will use published picture books, becoming familiar with the genre and learning various ways to use it with students.
