Michigan Moment Narrative
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
5.0 stars
Overview:

Students previously looked at maps of Michigan and discussed some of the cities and regions in our state. In reading, students began to read narratives, both fiction and nonfiction. For the entry event, students were asked to select an artifact that represented a special, small moment they experienced within the state of Michigan.

Students shared their artifacts and stories and plotted the setting from their stories on a map of Michigan. We realized our stories represented many regions in Michigan and could be used to describe many aspects of life as a Michigander. Students wanted to share these stories with others, so we began learning about narrative writing.

Typically, I use Google Slides for a mini-lesson, to allow students time to work on a specific, standard related task that will help build their Michigan small moment story, and then pull them together to share a few examples of student work. Students sometimes work alone, but often work with a partner or small group to brainstorm ideas, revise, and edit.

After, students will publish their ideas on Google Docs. When completed, they'll put their doc onto Google Sites or Google Slides and incorporate other media to enhance their story. Then, we'll print the story and create book covers using the iPad app Canva. We'll use both models to share with other classes within our school and hopefully with students from another country (I'm still working on finding an international school).
