Narrative Nonfiction Writing
Our home-schooled children have been looking at narrative nonfiction texts to help structure a story and look at key features to include.
The students looked at examples of narrative structure which helped to work towards their narrative writing task.
Some of the elements included looking at and discussing the following:
- Developed characters.
- Engaging dialogue, written as in a novel, as opposed to direct quotations.
- A story using scenes that follow a narrative.
- Use of literacy devices such as imagery, symbolism, and metaphors.
By looking at the above elements the students were able to explore the purpose and importance of structure within narratives.
