Looking through the Lens of the First Person Narrator: Writing from Models

Unit 9: Looking through the Lens of the First Person Narrator
Lesson 3 of 3

Objective: SWBAT develop their own first paragraphs based on the models studied in the Famous First Paragraphs lesson. Students will incorporate details of setting, the "seeds" of conflict, and revealing information about the speaker.

Big Idea: After looking carefully at famous authors' first paragraphs, students should be inspired to follow those examples and take a purposeful approach to their own writing.
