This year in literacy one of the projects we did was a narrative essay. We were required to write a story about something that happened to us, where we learned a valuable lesson.
We worked on our narrative for a while, and also made many revisions to them. Our class wrote two personal narratives based on real life experiences, and got graded for both of them.
I wrote mine about when I got lost at Wrigley field, and the time that I fell while trying to make a turn on my bike. I narrated them both in 1st person. Throughout the revisions we worked on improving the layout, word choice, and making the theme clear throughout.
