After reading several literacy narratives and studying the key features of literacy narratives in the Norton book (online), I use this assignment sheet to assign my students their own literacy narrative.
I use this writing assignment for many purposes. I get to know about their past experiences with reading and writing through this personal essay and we get to practice using complex text structures with content that is less intimidating than literary analysis or criticism.
Before assigning this, I teach three common literacy narrative text structures: compare and contrast, problem and solution, and sequencing. The students get to choose which structure they will use in their narrative.
I did not include points on this version so that others may assign points to the requirement categories.
