Personal Narrative Writing Assignment about a time when you faced a personal challenge. This assignment requires that the students "slow down" and focus only on ONE particular moment that changed them. I use the example of Tell Tale Heart when talking about slowing down a moment to write about. How all the senses should be described as well as steering away from using "be" verbs to using more vivid verbs and diction. There are activities to do with the children to prepare them to write this essay as well as an example essay. This can be completed as classwork, homework or combination of both. It's up to you!
