Unit of Study: Realistic Fiction Date: _______________________ Title of Minilesson: Publishing Anthologies Session 15 pgs. 187-191 Intention: Celebrate the writing that they have accomplished Materials: See pg. 187 for various ideas Connection: We have worked so hard on our realistic fiction stories. You should be so proud of yourselves for all the work and thought that you put into your stories. Today we will have a chance to share what we have accomplished. Teaching: Active Engagement: Students will share their work. You may invite parents, other classes, teachers, or staff in the building. There are several ways that you could have the students share their work. Here are some suggestions: Divide the students into small groups and let them share with their group. Divide the students in half. Half of them stay in their seats, while the other half walk around to each desk and let the student share with them. Everyone comes to the carpet and shares one at a time to the group. Link: Share: Turn and talk to your partner. Tell them something that you did in your writing to make it your best work. What goals do you have for yourself as a writer? Give them some time to share with each other, then come back as a group and discuss a few things they talked about with their partner.
