Our Narrative Introductions lesson plan teaches students how to write and identify both personal and fictional narratives. During this lesson, students are asked to use their creativity and work with a partner to brainstorm 5 topics for a personal narrative and 5 ideas for a fictional narrative and list them and then write a short paragraph for one personal narrative topic and one fictional narrative topic. Students are also asked to work independently to read sentences and decide whether each is most likely from a personal or fictional narrative.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to establish a situation and introduce a narrator and/or characters in a narrative writing piece and to organize an event sequence that unfolds naturally.
