Register for the live webinar on Thursday, Oct. 7.
Building on our narrative-writing unit plan, this webinar will delve deeper into what makes a great personal narrative. You will hear from experts, including a New York Times editor who selects stirring personal stories for the popular Modern Love column, and a high school English teacher who uses our narrative-writing unit and mentor texts from The Times to help her students write college essays with voice, style and meaning.
This webinar will feature:
Miya Lee, the editor of Modern Love projects at The New York Times
Sharon Murchie, an English teacher at Okemos High School in Okemos, Mich.
Natalie Proulx, a senior staff editor at The Learning Network
This webinar ties into our Personal Narrative Writing Contest, which invites students to write short, powerful stories about a meaningful experience in their lives.
