The Short Story: A Slice of Life

Students are introduced to the characteristics of the short story. Individually, they use their own personal experiences to write a poem about their families to get them used to writing. Next, they practice reading various short stories outloud and answering comprehension questions. To end the lesson, they write their rough draft of a short story about their families and how it relates to their identity.

Lesson Planet has been awesome to me. As a 1st year teacher I often spend so much time planning and researching materials that could help my students/classes learn. Lesson Planet has given me great access to emergency lesson plans and activities, video clips, and many more unit ideas to succeed.
