Learning Target
I can write a narrative about my childhood that reveals my cultural identity.

Opening Session (10 minutes)
Grab your laptops and pull up the cultural identity narrative you worked on yesterday! Trade laptops with a friend and read each other’s narratives. Tell your friend two good things they did in their narrative, and one place you think they can improve!

Work Session (55 minutes)
You will have the entire work session to finish your cultural identity narrative! Remember, your goal is to write a narrative essay that shows your personal cultural identity through story. You may use the “I remember…” format given in class, or you may choose your own structure. Your essay should be approximately 500 words, written in MLA format (Times New Roman 12, double spaced, MLA header) and turned in electronically to your teacher through Google Drive.

Closing Session (5 minutes)
TURN IT IN! I’ll go over again how to upload essays to Google Drive
