Narrative Essay

We will write a narrative essay before reading Speak. Below are three prompts-- please write only 1 essay response. We will do a teacher-conference workshop and a peer-editing workshop in class (the week of Sept. 21-25). It is due September 28th class time, printed. 

1. Think about a time when you didn't know what to say — until it was too late. Retell your story the way you wish it had happened. 

2. Think about something that happened to you that you'll never forget. Write about what happened, who was involved, and where it happened. Make sure you capture what makes that event hard to forget.

3. Think about a time when you stood up for what you believed in. Be sure to set share with your reader what the situation was like, what happened when you stood your ground, and what happened as a result.
