Class Experience

 Students will practice writing skills; specifically, the six traits of writing and use DOK processes to express themselves.
Trained in CUENTOS: Storytelling from Memories. 1999. This lesson was infused within my curriculum for 15 years and students found the activity to be rewarding and somewhat therapeutic. In my classrooms, students used these short stories to conduct open mic sessions during lunch and it was an empowering experience for all. 
Students will need a picture, journal entry or an image of a memory that is important to them before attending class. 
Paper/Pencil (Outline & Draft) Students may choose to use their digital device to complete this activity.
Each student will have an opportunity to conference with me to discuss their progress, and process and will receive an informal assessment at the end of class when they submit or share their final product with me. Since this is a short class, we will complete a brainstorm and a rough draft. Students will write the final draft on their own. 
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I suggest working with the child to select a picture/image or memory that is not emotionally heavy, unless a parent or guardian is directly working with the child to help process big emotions.
