Product Description
This PowerPoint activity takes students through a brainstorming exercise in which students are presented with various categories and quickly list memories/ thoughts that come to mind.

At the end of the brainstorming exercise, students have a nice bank of ideas from which to select a personal narrative story topic. I typically have my students do this activity at the start of a personal narrative unit and then have them draft 3-5 different stories from their lists.

This activity is an excellent, interactive activity that students will really enjoy. It is also great for college essay brainstorming to push students beyond writing cliche stories.

Feel free to replace my own personal lists with memories of your own! This will help you bond with your students even more and also give them ideas of memories or thoughts to write down about themselves. Take the time to share as you move through each topic, and students will really get excited about writing the personal narrative essay!
