Students are challenged to include all the essential elements to make their narratives spectacular! This narrative checklist can be used by students to check their own narrative or that of one of their classmates. On this two-page worksheet, students are asked to identify the point of view of the narrator, attention-grabber, dialogue, sentence variety, transitions, figures of speech, and the elements of plot (character, setting/mood, conflict, climax, resolution, and theme). At the end, students grade the narrative and add three comments, compliments, or pieces of advice. Use this "Narrative Checklist" to ensure well written narratives as students learn to include the essentials and revise their own stories to be engaging!
