What is narrative writing? Develop a group definition. SNRPDP Narrative Writing What is narrative writing? A type of fiction or nonfiction that tells a story or a series of event. CCSD ELA/Reading Glossary, CEF, XII - 5 SNRPDP Narrative Writing

What is narrative writing? Narrative writing conveys experience, either real or imaginary, and uses time as its deep structure. It can be used for many purposes, such as to inform, instruct, persuade, or entertain. In English language arts, students produce narratives that take the form of creative fictional stories, memoirs, anecdotes, and autobiographies.

SNRPDP Narrative Writing Personal Narrative: Small Moments A small moment is one-place, one-time. ~ Lucy Calkins SNRPDP Narrative Writing Personal Narrative: Small Moments We want to help our students think of a moment one place, one time, as Lucy Calkins says.

A small moment in writing is taking a special place in writing and putting it under a magnifying lens to enlarge it, just the way scientists use microscopes and magnifying lenses to look at something very small and make it much bigger so they can observe all of the details. SNRPDP Units of Study for Primary Writing: A Yearlong Curriculum Small Moments: Personal Narrative Writing Lucy Calkins Narrative Writing Personal Narratives and The Value of Mentor Texts We all need mentors in our lives those knowledgeable

others who help us learn how to be teachers, mothers, musicians, artist, athletes who help us do what we could not do before on our own. So, too, do our young writers need mentors. SNRPDP Mentor Texts: Teaching Writing Through Childrens Literature K-6 By Lynne R. Dorman and Rose Cappelli Narrative Writing Personal Narratives and The Value of Mentor Texts Although it is impossible to have our students open their notebooks and write alongside Cynthia Rylant or Jane

Yolen, we can bring the literature of these authors and many others into our classroom communities to serve as mentors. How do you see mentor texts fitting into your writing instruction?

Dorman and Rose Cappelli Narrative Writing Teaching With Mentor Texts Mentor texts can be used to spur ideas, but they can also be used to teach a particular skill or strategy. Select some good books, both narrative and informational. They should be books that you love and books that your students have

already enjoyed and studied as readers. Talk about the authors and how they wrote their books. What can you find that makes the writing splendid? Onomatopoeia? Alliteration? Repetition? Interesting word choice? Unique beginning or ending? Unique word formation? Strong character Mentor Texts: Teaching Writing Through Childrens Literature K-6 development? Rhythm or rhyme? By Lynne R. Dorman and Rose Cappelli SNRPDP Narrative Writing Teaching With Mentor Texts As you and the students point out places in texts where writers have used particular writing techniques, name the techniques and label them with post-it notes or highlight the passages with

highlighter tape. Students will begin to go back to these mentor texts as models for their writing. Students will also soon be able to go through their favorite books and label elements of splendid writing style with post-it notes or highlighter tape all by themselves. Mentor Texts: Teaching Writing Through Childrens Literature K-6 SNRPDP By Lynne R. Dorman and Rose Cappelli Narrative Writing The Value of Mentor Texts Mentor texts serve to show, not just tell, students how to write well.

They, along with the teacher, provide wonderful examples that help students grow into successful writers through supportive partnerships. SNRPDP Mentor Texts: Teaching Writing Through Childrens Literature K-6 By Lynne R. Dorman and Rose Cappelli Narrative Writing The Value of Mentor Texts Dont forgetYOU are a mentor too. Write in front of your students. When we write, it helps us engage in the same struggles as our young writers and the same

problem-solving strategies we want them to use. SNRPDP Narrative Writing The Value of Mentor Texts It helps us be more fluid and flexible through experimentation with targeted skills and strategies for specific writing situations. Therefore, it becomes easier to help our students in teacher/student conferences. It would be difficult to teach someone how to swim if you didnt do it yourself first SNRPDP Mentor Texts: Teaching Writing Through Childrens Literature K-6

By Lynne R. Dorman and Rose Cappelli Narrative Writing The Value of Mentor Texts We write to capture our lives, and thats what our students need to see us model (Morgan, 2005). We join our students as a player in the classroom writing community instead of standing apart as a spectator. If you have never written in front of your students before, take the plunge: They will appreciate your risk taking, and you will have a much clearer idea of what you are actually asking them to do (Routman, 2005).

By Lynne R. Dorman and Rose Cappelli Narrative Writing The Value of Mentor Texts With a room full of authors to help us teach, teaching writing doesnt have to be so lonely. ~ Katie Wood Ray, Wondrous Words SNRPDP CCSS Writing Samples Thinking about the standards weve covered during the first session What evidence do you see of these standards in the writing models from the Common Core

Standards? (Turn to Appendix C) Discuss at your groups. SNRPDP CCSS Writing Samples My first tooth is gone I recall one winter night. I was four. My sister and I were running down the hall and something happend. It was my sister and I had run right into each other. Boy! did we cry. But not only did I cry, my tooth was bleeding. Then it felt funny. Then plop! There it was lying in my hand. So that night I put it under my pillow and in the morning I found something. It was not my tooth it was two dollars. So I ran down the hall, like I wasent supposed to, and showed my mom and dad. They were suprised because when they SNRPDP lost teeth the only thing they got is 50.

SNRPDP Writing Partnerships Writing, like teaching, can be a lonely enterprise

because there are ways in which both are always done alone. How crucial it is that the solitude of writing (like the solitude of teaching) is balanced and supported by intervals of collaboration. SNRPDP Units of Study for Primary Writing: A Yearlong Curriculum Small Moments: Personal Narrative Writing Lucy Calkins Writing Partnerships "Each year, when we ask employers to rate the importance

of a variety of skills and abilities, communication comes out on top," says Marilyn Mackes. "At the same time, however, employers view many other attributes as critical. This year, for example, employers cite the ability to work in a team, interpersonal and problem-solving skills, and initiative as among their most preferred qualities. Theyre looking for the wellrounded candidate who can work well with others and function effectively in the workplace." Why is this important? What does this have to do with writing partnerships? NACE Article, December 2007 SNRPDP Writing Partnerships

The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy. www.commoncore.org SNRPDP Writing Partnerships Writing Partnerships by Cathy Hsu

The Reading Teacher, October 2009, Vol. 63, No. 2 SNRPDP Establishing Long-Term Partnerships Prior to introducing partnerships, decide how to partner your students. Consider ability levels, friendships, and behavior issues. Convene your class, steering them to new seats. Have your writers sit in assigned spots, next to the partner youve chosen for them. Explain that they have almost everything writers need: tools (pencils, markers, pens, folders, etc.), paper or booklets.

SNRPDP Units of Study for Primary Writing: A Yearlong Curriculum Small Moments: Personal Narrative Writing Lucy Calkins Establishing Long-Term Partnerships Explain that writers need one more thing: Writers need company. Explain that we all need a writing friend or two and often, we will get together with our writing friend to plan what we will do. Tell children that today they will be planning with a partner. Tell students, So far, weve been planning by thinking in our

own minds about our stories. But writers also plan by talking with a friend or partner. Today were going to use our partners to help us plan. SNRPDP Units of Study for Primary Writing: A Yearlong Curriculum Small Moments: Personal Narrative Writing Lucy Calkins Establishing Long-Term Partnerships Demonstrate how writers share previously written work and discuss future writing. Have your writers sit in assigned spots, next to the partner youve chosen for them. Explain that they have almost everything writers need: tools

(pencils, markers, pens, folders, etc.), paper or booklets. Choose two students to demonstrate how partners work together, or you demonstrate, role-playing partnerships with a student. SNRPDP Units of Study for Primary Writing: A Yearlong Curriculum Small Moments: Personal Narrative Writing Lucy Calkins Every standard in kinder, 1st, and 2nd grades say strengthen writing as needed So, how can we differentiate our teaching to meet the diverse needs of our students in writing?

Spelling Sight Words Capitals and Periods Adding Details Writing Conferences SNRPDP Writing Conferences Conferring is the heart of the writing workshop. Indeed, it is the very heart of teaching itself. Conferring is hard. When it is done well, it can change the course of a writing life forever.

SNRPDP Units of Study for Primary Writing: a Yearlong Curriculum. The Conferring Handbook by Lucy Calkins Writing Conferences Always keep in mind that you are teaching the writer, not simply improving a writing piece. Teach the writer, not the writing. ~ Lucy Calkins Why is this important to consider when youre going into a writing conference? SNRPDP Units of Study for Primary Writing: a Yearlong Curriculum.

Probe to glean more about the childs intentions. Name what the child has already done as a writer and remind the child to do this in future writing.

SNRPDP Units of Study for Primary Writing: a Yearlong Curriculum. The Conferring Handbook by Lucy Calkins Kinds of Conferences Content Conferences The listener and this may be a teacher or peer encourages the writer to talk in detail about his or her subject. Give feedback to encourage the writer. Then retell the content in ways that spur the writer to add on. Expectation Conferences Remind an individual writer who is not behaving appropriately that his or her behavior does not match

expectations for writing time and for writers. Process and Goals Conferences Helping students remember the processes involved in writing and setting goals for the next step of their work. SNRPDP Units of Study for Primary Writing: a Yearlong Curriculum. The Conferring Handbook by Lucy Calkins Methods of Teaching In every conference and every mini-lesson, a teacher uses one of four teaching methods. Guided practice: as the writer works, the teacher interjects lean prompts that either lift the level of

what the writer is doing or scaffold the childs work in a step-by-step fashion Demonstration: the teacher names what she will teach the writer and she sets the writer up to watch her doing something. SNRPDP Units of Study for Primary Writing: a Yearlong Curriculum. The Conferring Handbook by Lucy Calkins Methods of Teaching In every conference and every mini-lesson, a teacher uses one of four teaching methods. Explicitly tell and show an example: much like giving the writer a little speech about something. Tell them

what they will do, then give an example of how it is done. Inquiry: teachers invite students to study something and extrapolate the principles they need to learn. (Rarely used in the primary grades.)
