Big Idea

In this lesson, students will compose a fictional narrative piece which includes dialogue between characters.


Composing Narrative Stories

60 minutes

In the previous lesson, the students reviewed how to use quotation marks to include dialogue in writing.  They also planned out their story using a graphic organizer.  In this lesson, I will review quotation marks to being.  

Once we have reviewed quotation marks, I will go over the writing rubric I will be using with the students so they are aware of what I am looking for when grading these papers. 

I will then allow the students the remainder of the time today to compose their narrative stories.
