Looking for a personal narrative project to inspire writers of all abilities? Writing a personal narrative about a 'terrible tragedy", a time they got hurt, will get your students writing fluently and with enthusiasm. Often, these stories are the longest and best crafted to date. These get a lot of attention when posted in the hall and make a great class book.
