Connecting Feelings and Memories

Curriculum Unit (pdf)


Connecting Feelings and Memories will be the first unit taught in Writer’s Workshop. It will set the expectations and tone for writing time, while allowing you to get to know your students. The goal of this unit is to give your students a voice when it comes to writing. This unit will create a safe writing environment where students feel secure to write and share their feelings and memories. By including various mentor texts from culturally diverse authors students will not only be exposed to a new genre, but also have the opportunity to make connections through feelings, lifestyles, and personal experiences. Throughout the unit, writing activities and techniques will be used to introduce and guide students through the writing process.
