Narrative Essay Instructions:
The following criteria reflect the areas needed for a successful narrative essay.
The essay should have a clear purpose and a main idea/thesis statement within the first paragraph.
The narrative should share a larger lesson with the audience than simply retelling an event.
A strong narrative centers on a conflict building from introduction to body to a thought-provoking resolution.
It should use descriptive language to bring the reader into the experience.
Please see pages 89-92 for more details about the qualities of an effective narrative essay.
Share one moment related to an experience where you faced a serious challenge.
How did you overcome that challenge?
What did it teach you?
In your conclusion, think about what others should learn based on your experience. (Avoid using “you”–see the Week 1 Blog.)
