Personal Narratives from New Jersey

Posted by dogtrax on December 23, 2007

Students from Robbinsville, New Jersey started the school year retelling memorable moments in their lives. After several lessons on writing craft, the students wrote personal narratives using imagery, dialogue, and thoughts/emotions. The students have worked hard writing and revising; let us know what you think!

    We listened to the group one memory. It was a great story and very focused. We really liked it. You did a great job choosing words that described actions and people.
    Thank you!

  2. Hello New Jersey,

    I just finished listening to Group 4’s stories (I’m going in reverse order) and both are wonderful! I would love to hear a little about the revision process you went through to get your pieces from an initial idea to a polished podcast. I think for many writers, it’s sometimes difficult to know when to end a story, but, clearly, that was not a problem for either of you!

    Thanks for sharing,
    Mrs. Desler
