The first major writing assignment will be a personal narrative.
Write an autobiographical narrative based on a challenge or choice in the student’s life that follows a logical sequence. Use narrative techniques such as dialogue, pacing, and descriptive details. Include a conclusion that reflects on the significance of the experience.
