Getting Personal/Concept Mapping Narratives : Language Arts, Creative Writing, Peer Editing

After reading and discussing examples of personal narratives, groups of students highlight elements of the text that emphasize setting, conflict and private thoughts. Class members then work independently to create a concept map of a scene from their own lives. Next, they write the scene incorporating these elements of narrative writing. Finally, they proceed through stages of the writing process and practice peer revision.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
