Class Experience

Day 1
Objective 1: Students will be encouraged to observe changes and sequences of events for the purpose of narrating them in a structured way.
Objective 2: Students will identify a precise noun as a word that provides a word picture so the reader understands the exact meaning of what the writer is stating. 
Day 2
Objective 1: Students will be encouraged to focus on exactly what they find out about a subject, record findings in a log, and use the log to write a narrative of the recorded events. 
Objective 2: Students will learn that an effective way to build a big idea is to combine it with supporting ideas to make one sentence. 
Day 3
Objective 1: Students will examine a personal experience and discover what they’ve learned from it. 
Objective 2: Students will make comparisons that explain how one thing is like another thing. 
Homework will not be assigned. If students do not finish the classwork, they will be encouraged to finish outside of class.
Graphic organizers will be provided in the classroom by the teacher. Students should have a small journal or spiral notebook to record information, create charts, and write short narratives. If students completed Narrative Writing Part 1, they should add to the journal from that course. A dictionary or thesaurus.
Written reflections based on the lesson objectives will be used to evaluate individual learning progress.
2 hours 45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
