    • The Narration Pattern
    • Narration
      • A narrative is a story that explains or illustrates some point .
      • Like all good stories, a narrative should be captivating, have interesting details, and contain features like plot and setting.
    • Tell Your Story for a Reason
      • Your story should have a specific purpose.
      • Make sure to state your point in a clear thesis statement .
    • Details!
      • Interesting & captivating stories usually include specific, descriptive details to make the story vivid.
      • Important details describe scenery, key people, and events.
      • Determine which details need emphasis; the more details your reader has, the better they understand your point.
    • Answer Questions
      • To choose details, answer the standard questions: Who? What? Where? When? Why? How?
      • Explaining the specifics of what happened gives readers all the significant details.
    • Write Dialogue
      • Dialogue can be powerful in a story.
      • It can move a story forward, give pertinent information, or give insight into a character’s personality.
    • Organizing
      • Chronological order arranges details in the order they occurred.
      • Or, to try something more interesting, tell events out of order.
    • Visualize
      • It is often helpful to plan or pre-write your essay.
      • This help you write a more effective story.
