    Narrative Powerpoint Narrative Powerpoint Presentation Transcript

    • Narrative
    • Narrative writing tells a story.
      A story has certain elements that are not found in other types of writing.
    • Elements of a Story
      The setting and characters
    • Elements of a Story
      Rising Action:
      Events that occur in the story that lead to the climax.
      During the rising action, CONFLICT should occur.
    • Elements of a Story
      Usually the most exciting, dramatic, or emotional part of the story.
      This is where the action changes and is usually when the conflict comes to a head.
    • Elements of a Story
      Falling Action:
      This is the part
      of the story where
      all the loose ends are wrapped up.
    • Elements of a Story
      The ending of the story.
      They all live
      happily ever after!
    • Make a MIND MOVIE
      Imagine the action in the story step-by-step.
      What do you see?
      What do you taste?
      What do you hear?
      What do you feel?
    • Make sure the story flows and makes sense.
      All stories should have a conflict or problem, a climax, and an ending.
    • There should be a good, but short, beginning (with a grabber) and end.
      The topic should be mentioned in the beginning and end.
    • Transition words should be used throughout the passage.
    • Other Important Tips!
    • Be careful with dialogue:
    • All good writing begins with a PLANNER!
    • For a higher score, spelling and grammar are important, BUT
      The writing content is more very important!
    • Organization is Important
      Students should use their organizers to decide when to make a new paragraph.
      Make sure paragraphs are indented!
    • Similes should make sense to ANY reader!
    • Expository
    • Expository Writing
      Expository writing explains or informs.
      Prompts for expository writing use words such as: explain, clarify, inform, describe.
      Expository writing has three main parts or sections.
    • In writing an expository paper,
      the student should:
      Read the prompt carefully
      Brainstorm a list of ideas
      Make an outline
      Write an introductory paragraph
      Write at least two or three body paragraphs
      Write a concluding paragraph
    • Brainstorming
      After reading a prompt, students
      brainstorm ideas for their paper.
      Example: The student
      is asked to write about pets.
      The student makes a list of
      Ideas for a paper about pets.
    • The next step is to make an OUTLINE.
    • Expository Writing
      The three body parts of an expository paper include
      The Introduction
      The body usually has three sections or paragraphs .
      The Body
      The Conclusion
    • The introduction should state the theme of the paper
      The Introduction
      The body provides support, details, and examples.
      The Body
      The conclusion “wraps up” thoughts and ideas about the theme.
      The Conclusion
    • Effective writing contains the same creativity skills whether it is narrative or expository.
