This You Can't Tell it All!: Narrowing the Focus of Personal Narratives lesson plan also includes:
Work on narrative skills by discovering how to be focused in writing. Upper graders will brainstorm the importance of focus in texts. They study transparencies of a narrative story from a 4th grade student. Then they study the focus of the writing. They will also select an event to write about as a class and write paragraphs for the events to share in groups.
