Transcript of The Writing Process Intro w/ Pre-writing mini-lesson

We're going to work our way through the writing process and write a personal narrative essay in the process!
What are the steps?
That's the process, but we need to generate a bunch of ideas in order to find the best ones to write about!
We do that when we...
Prewriting includes:
Exploring possible topics.
Choosing and narrowing the topic.
Identifying your purpose and audience.
Collecting and organizing details.
How do we generate ideas?
Well, we can start by:
FREEWRITING in our writer's notebooks.
These are great ways to start,
whether you're trying to find a topic, or if you're working on details for a topic you've been given.
As you begin generating ideas for detail, keep these questions in mind:
What do you want to explain or describe?
What do you want your readers to learn?
Who will read your finished writing?
How will you connect the readers to your topic?
Organize your thoughts and ideas:

You might use a graphic organizer.

You might use a story board.

You might use an outline.

These are all good ways to get organized before you begin writing your first draft.
That brings us to...
This week, we will be writing a personal narrative about an experience in your life.

We will use the writing process to be certain that our narratives will be as fabulous as they can be!
Your narrative...
Will be 3-4 paragraphs long.
Will be a STORY with a beginning, middle, and end.
Will use the elements of narratives, which we have been talking about for the last two weeks.
Final drafts will be typed in class on Friday.
Start brainstorming tonight with the help of the NARRATIVE TICKET!

See my teacher website for the ticket and instructions on how to proceed. We will begin drafting tomorrow in class.
Need help? See me after school tomorrow!
