Counting Up/Down Stories

This Counting Up/Down Stories lesson plan also includes:

Mirroring Jerry Spinelli's style in Wringer, chapter 5, pupils use the "counting up/down technique" to recall an important moment in their lives. In the book, the character is being punched, and between blows he remembers details that make the scene longer. The activity is a Six-Trait writing lesson that will end in a final and revised story. All necessary worksheets are provided, with the exception of the reading; teachers will need to procure a copy of Wringer.
