Narrative Writing: Removing Irrelevant Details

Narrative Writing: Removing Irrelevant Details

In narrative writing, irrelevant details, or extra information that is not really important, can distract the reader from the main idea. In this middle grades worksheet, Narrative Writing: Removing Irrelevant Details, students will read six narrative paragraphs on different topics, crossing out the sentence that distracts from the main story in each one. This activity is a great way to give sixth and seventh graders practice analyzing and evaluating the structure of narrative writing, while also helping learners hone their own narrative writing skills by studying examples and nonexamples.
