Unit 1 - Week 1 - Personal Narrative

A Personal Narrative focuses on an event or series of events in the writer's life. Personal Narratives are written in the first-person point of view, using the Pronoun I.

A well-written Personal Narrative uses precise words and phrases, relevant descriptive details, sensory language that capture's readers' attention by showing, rather than only telling about, the writer's experience.


Key Features of a Personal Narrative


- introduces the narrator, who uses the first-person point of view ("I")

- engages the reader by establishing context for a real event from the writer's life

-organizes an event sequence that unfolds naturally and logically

-uses relevant descriptive details as well as sensory language and precise words



In Old Yeller, Travis tells a story about his younger brother, Arliss.  Think about something important, funny, or exciting that happened to you when you were younger. Now write a personal narrative about that experience.
