Narrative Writing Prompt

Students in 8th Grade ELA are writing a narrative about a memorable moment.  Students are required to pick a memorable event and choose a moment within that event to explode and focus in on.  Students are working on the body of the narrative.  Students are tasked with balancing:

- sensory details (descriptions that appeal to the reader's sight, hearing, touch, etc.)

- actions (what the characters are doing)

- personal thoughts (the narrator's thoughts during the episode)

- dialogue (what characters say)
