Reflection: Intervention and Extension Timelines for planning - Section 2: Students Create Their Own


Inevitably, some students finish very quickly. If they have very few points on their timeline, I suggest adding a certain number more, such as 10. If they have a substantial timeline, then I ask them to find the most interesting part, and either turn that into a timeline where they identify the things that they thought or heard or said and other senses as they arose in that moment. If its too detailed to do that, I ask them to prewrite what that section of their writing would look like and encourage them to use as much detail as possible.

Timelines for planning

Unit 14: Developing Writing
Lesson 8 of 10

Objective: SWBAT use a timeline to organize events for writing a personal narrative.

Big Idea: As students begin to fill in their timelines, they often discover important but small details that they may have forgotten about if they just started draft without planning.
