This Narrative Writing lesson plan also includes:
Are you the oldest in your family? The youngest? The middlest? How do you feel about your place in your family? After reading such stories as My Rotten, Redheaded Older Brother by Patricia Polacco and Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume, young writers craft a persuasive piece in which they detail the advantages and disadvantages of their place. A detailed rubric is attached.
