New Strategy Release | Story Grammar
“Teach me to identify the key components of a story, (main character, setting, problem, attempts to solve the problem, solution, and consequences) as I read or write narratives so that I can better articulate the details.“
Best for Students Who: Struggle to identify the components of a typical narrative as well as comprehend the relationships between these elements.
Implementation Tips: You can use symbols or manipulatives for each part of the Story Grammar, if age appropriate. (For younger students: See Story Grammar Marker by Mindwing Concepts.) Be sure to first teach any vocabulary words that are conceptually important to the story content.
Desired results: Increased reading comprehension and retention.
