Two activities are included:
1. The brainstorming activity helps the student recall and choose an event that has personal significance.
2. The personal narrative pre-write activity guides the student through the personal narratives writing process. It helps them to focus on the event, to recall detail, and to consider the personal impact or significance of the event.
After filling out the pre-write, students will have developed most parts of their personal narratives, and may be ready to transfer it to paper for their rough draft.
