Grade 12 ELA Module 1, Unit 1, Lesson 18

Students Outside

In this lesson, students draft a response to one of the five Common Application prompts, focusing on how they sequence events to create a coherent whole. Students develop their narrative writing skills through practice with standard W.11-12.3.c and explore examples from The Autobiography of Malcolm X to consider how the author uses techniques to sequence events within the narrative to create a coherent whole and build toward a particular tone and outcome. Students then apply those techniques to their own narrative writing in response to one of the Common Application prompts.
