By now students should have completed one of more Independent Reading Logs. Students are also required to complete a Biblionasium Book Review. Students were taken to the Media Center for orientation by Ms. Chaney.
We have two more days of IOWA testing due to the two days off we had during the Hurricane Irma watch. Monday, September 18th, 2017 & Tuesday, September 19th, 2017 will be the last two days of testing. Please be present! Good Luck!
In order to ensure consistency throughout the county, all grades will be reflected in percentages.
We will resume normal classroom instruction on Wednesday, September 13, 2017. Iowa testing will resume on Thursday, September 14, 2017. Please be safe during the hurricane watch. Mrs. Rodriguez
As a mode of expository writing, the narrative approach, more than any other, offers writers a chance to think and write about themselves. We all have experiences lodged in our memories, which are worthy of sharing with readers. Yet sometimes they are so fused with other memories that a lot of the time spent in writing narrative is in the prewriting stage.
When you write a narrative essay, you are telling a story. Narrative essays are told from a defined point of view, often the author's, so there is feeling as well as specific and often sensory details provided to get the reader involved in the elements and sequence of the story. The verbs are vivid and precise. The narrative essay makes a point and that point is often defined in the opening sentence, but can also be found as the last sentence in the opening paragraph.
Since a narrative relies on personal experiences, it often is in the form of a story. When the writer uses this technique, he or she must be sure to include all the conventions of storytelling: plot, character, setting, climax, and ending. It is usually filled with details that are carefully selected to explain, support, or embellish the story. All of the details relate to the main point the writer is attempting to make.
To summarize, the narrative essay
What is left out is what the book or article is about -- the underlying concepts, assumptions, arguments, or point of view that the book or article expresses. A narrative report leaves aside a discussion that puts the events of the text into the context of what the text is about. Is the text about love? Life in the fast lane? Society? Wealth and power? Poverty? In other words, narrative reports often overlook the authors purpose or point of view expressed through the book or article.
Once an incident is chosen, the writer should keep three principles in mind.

We enjoyed reading and analyzing The Scholarship Jacket. We had some rich classroom discussions while we shared ideas. Now we are moving on to review Possessive Nouns while we use an excerpt from The Scholarship Jacket.
Students will create their own Personal Narrative.
