How To Use Why Use Narrative Lessons Narrative process writing gives students the tools to create original stories with imagination and creativity, write about events or experiences in their own lives, and develop plots with strong openings or introductions and satisfying closings or conclusions with descriptive details in between. How to Use Narrative Lessons Narrative process writing lessons take approximately two weeks, have six parts, and begin with teaching and modeling the writing process for the whole class. Leveled expectations in the sidebars of each lesson along with printable and projectable samples and graphic organizers help you support students at each of the four developmental writing levels.
