Lesson structure

  1. Encourage students to share their completed narratives with another student. 
  2. Bring the class together, and ask each pair to share with the class the different approaches they adopted, writing them up on the board as you progress.  
  3. Discuss which approaches were most effective, and why.  
  4. Ask the students to reflect on:  
    • The concept of narrative writing and their experiences with it;  
    • How they constructed their narratives, and how they reacted to the narratives made by other students.  
    • Which approaches to narrative writing they chose to use, why they chose them, where and how they used them, how well they worked, etc… 
  5. Have the students reflect on the NAPLAN minimum standards for Year 7 or Year 9 (located on different slides) and ask them to assess their work against these standards.  
  6. Read and discuss the NAPLAN marking criteria, and encourage students to evaluate their narratives against the Narrative writing checklist worksheet.
