Lesson Overview

Personal narratives are based on real-life (true) personal experiences that have significant meaning for the writer. These experiences usually make a big impact on the student’s life and add insight and learning into the student’s personal circle. The student will write a fight song describing the personal experience in detail, through lyrics and song. Remember – personal narratives are to be written in first person, point of view.
