Resources you will need

Lesson structure

  1. Now that your students have some understanding about how to write a narrative, ask them to construct a narrative themselves.
  2. Hand out to the class copies of the Dolphins in Captivity Fact Sheet. They may also find it useful to consult further resources on the topic.
  3. Provide them with the Lesson 11 Narrative Writing PowerPoint slides as these slides contain the narrative writing prompt for this exercise (also distribute the Narrative writing prompts document).
  4. Students can discuss ideas and plan their response. Ask them to create a narrative based on the prompt in the slides.
  5. Give students time in class to compose and develop their skills related to narrative writing.
  6. For example, timing writing responses (5 minutes planning, 30 minutes writing, and 5 minutes editing) or completing sections of a narrative in class.
  7. If time permits, encourage students to attempt the additional prompts in the slides (and in the Narrative writing prompts document).
