Our Conclusions for Narrative Writing lesson plan introduces students to writing effective conclusions for narratives. The lesson discusses exactly what narrative writing is and the different types of narratives students may be asked to create. The lesson emphasizes the importance of a strong conclusion to a piece of narrative writing and offers several strategies that can be used to create an effective ending. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively with a partner to write several different endings to a provided story, using each of the strategies discussed during the lesson. Students are also asked to match provided text with the best conclusion strategy for narrative writing, demonstrating their understanding of the different conclusion strategies and when they should be used.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to provide a conclusion that follows from the narrated experiences or events.
