Writing a personal narrative

  1. 1. Writing a Personal Narrative
  2. 2. What is a personal narrative?  A personal narrative is a story that a person writes about his/herself and is written in first person, using the perspective of “I.”  A personal narrative talks about your life experiences, often centered around a specific topic or theme, such as your experiences in education, your experiences with others cultures, or your experiences with making difficult choices.  For this class, you will write a 1-2 page personal narrative about your experiences with education.
  3. 3. How do I start?  First you need to brainstorm and think about all your experiences with education or schooling. You can start from the time that you were a child.  Do not think of educational experiences as only what you have learned in school. We learn from grandparents, parents, friends, cousins, boyfriends, girlfriends, children, and even strangers. We learn from success and we learn from failure. We learn many new skills at our jobs.  In your narrative, you can talk about the good and bad learning experiences you have had that make you who you are today.  To brainstorm you can use mind mapping software or even a simple MS Word template such as those on the next slide.
  4. 4. Mindmup-Mind mapping software  If you are interested in MindMup, you can watch the following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=--v7ZfTHNJ8  You can also use SmartArt templates in Microsoft Word like the one below. The following is not my story, it is just an example. My learning experinces I was born in Mexico and lived there until I was 7. We moved to the US when I was 8 and I had to learn English. Kids made fun of me at school because of my accent. By high school I spoke English really well. I watched a lot of movies with my boyfriend I met in 7th grade. We were not planning on starting a family young, but when I was 16, my boyfriend and I had a baby girl. Today my husband, me, and our little girl learn new things together all the time.
  5. 5. Your personal narrative assignment  You will write a 1-2 page educational narrative using Microsoft Word (MsWord).  You will upload the assignment in Schoology.  This assignment is worth 100 points.
