Common core and other standards require students at many levels to write a narrative.
When was the last time you applied all that you teach to write your own narrative, real or fiction?
In the coming weeks, I'll challenge myself once again to write a narrative. I'll do this prior to students' start of the unit.
Perhaps I'll even go through all the steps to publish this short story. Once I immerse myself in all the steps, I'll better be able to guide students in a similar journey.
Last year, I conducted a like effort as I composed a digital story about a childhood event.
Let me know if you've challenged yourself with writing and publishing your own narrative? If you've blogged about it, I'd love to read your thoughts. Thanks.
