Student Diversity and Differentiation of Instruction
Student Diversity
1. High Level Learners
2. Low Level Learners

Differentiation of Instruction
Students with high writing skills will have the opportunity to use their
creativity and vocabulary by offering sentence suggestions when the
class writes the story together.
Reading the story out loud and writing it together will help students
that struggle in reading and writing. Pictures of the narrative elements
will also help more visual learners.

Formative and Summative Assessment

Formative: I will ask students to tap into prior knowledge and check
understanding of narrative. After going over the elements with them, I

Formative: As a class, we will make a story together through studentsuggested ideas. This will show me which students understand the
narrative genre and which may need more support.
Summative: Throughout the unit, students will be creating their own
narratives that will be edited and revised.

Big Ideas to be Addressed in the Lesson:

1. Students see that narrative writing tells a story.

Teaching Strategies and Related Student Activities (Include Web 2.0 activities as
Teaching Strategies and Related Student Activities: What are the teaching strategies and activities
that you plan to use to help students meet the lessons objectives? What are the steps that you will take to
deliver this lesson (e.g., introduce the author, read the poem, ask students to)?
5 minutes: I will tap into prior knowledge and ask students what is a narrative and what does a narrative
need? I will introduce the basic elements of what a narrative is (plot, setting, characters, problem, solution,
and beginning, middle and end) with drawings on the board.
5 minutes: I will explain to the class that I will read them a short narrative and I want them to think about
the elements of a narrative as I read it. I will read Princess and the Pea and then the class will help me
identify the features of narrative that were presented in the story.
15-20 minutes: Using Scholastic Story Starter online, students will help choose a writing prompt. I will
hand out the narrative checklist to the class to help students remember what our story needs. As a class,
we will brainstorm a narrative story up on the board. When finished, students will read aloud.

*If extra time, students can choose a new prompt for another class story.
Teacher/Student Input: Write a note on what you expect the teacher and students to do as a part of this
activity. Include a note on whether this is an I do it, We do it or You do it type of activity 1.
I do it: I introduce the narrative elements, read the story to the class, and facilitate using Story Starter and
writing the story on the board.
We do it: We brainstorm what a narrative is, what the elements of Princess and the Pea are, and making a
narrative together.
Review: Write down ideas on how you will review the topic, including notes on types of formative
assessments that you will use during the lesson.
Throughout the lesson, I will be asking students for input on what narrative is and how to identify the
After reading the narrative story to the class, I will assess if students can identify the characters, plot, and
problem and solution of the story.
When we write our story together, a formative assessment will be checking if students can provide a
beginning, middle, and end to the narrative, as well as a problem and solution.
In future lessons, students will use a graphic organizer to review the parts of a narrative and the narrative
checklist I gave them will be referred back to for their personal writing.

Discussion Topics
Write out topics that you would like students to discuss in class, before class or after class because they
are interesting, difficult to grasp or for any other reason that would make for a lively and engaging
discussion. If discussions must happen outside class, what tool will you use to facilitate the discussion (e.g.
-What is a narrative?
-What does a narrative need?
-What is the plot of this story? What is the setting? Who are the characters? What is the problem and
These questions will happen throughout class.
