Lesson 13 - Revising Narrative Texts: Editing Conventions and Writing a Second Draft

To learn more about this lesson, read the Lesson 13 Narrative found under the Additional Materials tab.

Daily Learning Targets 

  • I can check my peers’ work for correct spelling, capitalization, and punctuation. 
  • I can write a new draft of my narrative incorporating all of my revisions and teacher feedback. 

Purpose of Lesson

  • In the Opening, students share what they have read and learned from their independent reading texts. This sharing is designed as another measure for holding students accountable for their research reading completed for homework. This volume of reading promotes students’ growing ability to read a variety of literary and informational texts independently and proficiently.
  • During work time, students read each other’s narratives to identify issues with conventions (spelling, punctuation, capitalization). They also receive teacher feedback from their Mid-Unit 3 Assessments and then write a new draft of their narrative, incorporating all of the revisions and teacher feedback.

In Advance 

  • Prepare a research reading share using with the Independent Reading: Sample Plan document, or using your own independent reading routine.
  • Post: Spelling Conventions, Capitalization Conventions, and Punctuation Conventions Anchor Charts; learning targets.

Digital Materials Preparation:

  • Prepare to display and assign the lesson to students before class.
