Personal narrative assignments provide multilingual learners with unique opportunities to explore their heritage. The social isolation young second-language scholars have endured during virtual learning have left many in dire need of lessons that affirm their identity while advancing their academic communication skills. Well intentioned educators often underestimate the organizational and linguistic complexities of crafting an effective personal narrative for multilingual learners. Dr. Kinsella shares classroom-tested instructional routines and practical resources to implement a successful personal narrative writing unit that honors diversity and builds a more cohesive community of learners. Proven practices include well-designed discussion and writing prompts, small group discussion guides, writing models, accessible rubrics, and relevant vocabulary lessons.
