The story and worksheets come from the curriculum used at Arden Reading Academy, A personal narrative combines a report with a story. The body of the paper would be a story about an event or experience in your life or someone else's life This course is intended for elementary students who have mastered the ability to plan and construct a narrative and expository essay with limited instruction.
For example, you may have worn your school uniform to a lot of activities, like chess club after school, but if that fact has no bearing on your position that public school uniforms are a good idea, then edit that idea, and omit it from your essay. As I mentioned, it's important to omit irrelevant facts and ideas.
It's just as important to keep relevant points on track.
(The ball here is the main point of your essay.) You may have observed or experienced a lot of things that relate to the topic of your essay, but that doesn't mean that those things are relevant and should be in your essay.
Always ask yourself: does the idea that I'm about to include support my point?
This course is for homeschooled students needing direction in the writing process.
Students will learn how to write a proper response to literature, personal narrative, narrative fiction, and expository essay.
You need to give glimpses of yourself - your personal experiences, observations and views - but you need to do so with a specific purpose in mind.
Your job isn't to throw out a ton of details, but rather to achieve a certain goal by using a select few of those experiences, observations, and views.
You may be asked to write a personal essay as part of the application process for a college, or you might be given the assignment of writing a personal essay for a writing course or a test.
Whatever the case may be, there are a few things that you should keep in mind in order to keep your personal essay on track.
