Grade 12 ELA Module 1, Unit 1, Lesson 12

Female Looking for Books

In this lesson, students develop their narrative writing skills through practice with standard W.11-12.3.b. Students use examples from The Autobiography of Malcolm X to explore different narrative techniques and then apply those techniques to their own narrative writing in response to one of the Common Application prompts. Students have the choice of expanding on their narratives from 12.1.1 Lesson 6 or choosing to respond to a new prompt.
