The Personal Narrative

Coming up with possible topics is the first step. Usually I have students email me there list of topics so they can truly write whatever they want. Make sure they pick a VERY narrow topic. Anything that takes longer than 24 hours is typically not a good choice. Some of the best stories took place in less than an hour!

Then one needs to choose a topic and write character descriptions (doc) for their event. Here's my filled out example (pdf) chart.

Next they need to consider conflict and order (doc). Here's my filled out example (pdf) chart.

And of course they must have their own literary elements (doc)! Here's my fill out example chart (pdf).
