Narrative Communication - ... Through narratives, learners are now able to appreciate chronology, dilemmas and emotions. Classroom storytelling has mediated knowledge acquisition in various courses in the universities, besides allowing learners to socialize. Research has also found that teacher development is enhanced through narratives by allowing the teacher to produce their own accounts during teaching (Coste, 1989). In so doing, they are able to reflect and evaluate their own as well as other tutors’ teaching methods and beliefs....   [tags: Education]

Slave Narrative - ... Douglass watched his Aunt Hester being brutally whipped, and although describing it with detail 'where the blood ran fasted, there he whipped longest' (Douglass, Narrative, p.2074), he is unable to scribe his full emotional distress of the scene. This I note as being a tactic to portray the horror, through his personal reserve. For if Douglass was to discuss every excruciating emotion, this may have been viewed by some readers at the time, as a hyperbolic reaction, thus tainting the truth of the scene....   [tags: Comparative, Brown, Douglass, Jacobs 1] 1657 words

Personal Narrative: My Journey to Literacy - All I could remember on my journey to literacy was my concern over my brother and sister’s ability to read and write including solving math problems. That did not really motivate not to become literate; I was extremely playful as a child. What I am able to remember is my first day of school, I cried like a baby when my mom dropped me off. I soon began to grow out of my baby stage and school became really interesting. Even though it was not as hard as it is now, the value that pushed me to be literate was how my teacher was able to discipline students if they didn’t give the best to their education....   [tags: Personal Narrative, Education, Teaching] 1143 words

Personal Narrative: My Journey to Literacy - My achievement of becoming literate in both English and Spanish, after overcoming a myriad of obstacles distinguishes my literacy history. Writing was one of the things I didn’t like to do as a child. I always thought writing was a waste of time and that I wasn’t going to need it in life. Even though I didn’t invest much time writing, I was one of the best writers in all my classes, probably because I was very dedicated in the other subjects and I loved reading adventure books. I learned how to read and write by the age of four, since in my native country “the Dominican Republic”, kids are enrolled in school at the age of three; usually parents start their child’s education at home before that age....   [tags: Personal Experience, Personal Narrative] 840 words

As I peered out toward the horizon, I saw nothing but tree tops, and some snow capped mountain tops in the distance. With my feet bound to freshly waxed skis, the only thing stronger than my ski poles was my determination to get down the mountain. I turned to my right, only to see the immediate drop off of the ski slope. As I crept up a little closer to the edge, I noticed an incline that before now was only known to me through pictures of cliff diving, or an exaggerated road runner and coyote cartoon....   [tags: Narrative Essay Ski Trip] 501 words

It was when Christ Church School took us all to Chessington World of Adventures for an end of Y9 trip. I don't remember the exact date seeing as this was two years ago, but I remember all the main events and important goings on. It all started when I woke up for school, normal time, in my normal routine, although I didn't pack any books or put on my school uniform. I went straight into the bathroom, had a wash, brushed my teeth and went back into my room to dress....   [tags: Papers] 1664 words

Narrative Writing - Narrative Writing The young girl remained motionless by the tree, and Gabriel descended into the village of Weatherbury. She sat there, still looking at the stars. Oak had faded into the distance. She began walking slowly in the direction of Weatherbury. She arrived in the silence of night. Nothing or no-one were around. The temperature had plummeted way below zero. She began to feel the bitterness of the cold as only a hooded cloak was her cover.

Free Narrative Essays - A Bowl of Soup - A Bowl of Soup It was a simple bowl of soup. Chicken with rice, from a can. But as I sat down to eat my lunch, a sudden thought flashed through my head: What a miracle this bowl of soup is. A savory, golden broth, bright orange carrot coins, plump grains of rice, bits of chicken. Struck deeply by this realization, I simply sat for a minute watching thin wisps of steam rising from the surface. Just a bowl of soup. I'd never given much thought to the origins of my food. I simply went to the store, threw produce and cans and boxes into my cart, and brought them home....   [tags: Personal Narrative Essay Example] 423 words

Narrative Essay: she always laughs... - she always laughs... Suicide makes me think of my grandmother and uncle whom I never met. Each took their lives before I was born. I spoke with my mother about Grandma Ruth yesterday evening. She delights in telling me how much Grandma Ruth would have loved me. We didn't talk about her often. She died when my mother was a junior in high school. My mother always refered to her as "my mother", so it wasn't until I was a teen that I came up with a name for her.

Personal Narrative - My Father and I - My Father and I My father and I started walking down the long, black, shiny wall. As we got closer are steps were slower. We moved with hesitation. My heart began to beat faster, and I felt an ache in the pit of my stomach. My father squeezed my hand as we approached a statue of three men cast in bronze. The Vietnam Veteran's Memorial or "The Wall" lay just beyond, but we found ourselves unable to move. My father stood staring at the statue, afraid to go on. Between silences, he spoke about the incredible detailed work of the sculpture, such as the towel wrapped around the neck of one of the soldiers, the M-60 machine gun and the soldier's bandoleers of ammunition....   [tags: Personal Narrative Essay Example] 437 words

Free Narrative Essays - Surfing the Crowd - Surfing the Crowd In my mind it was my biggest act of courage. It was far from a heroic deed, but I overcame all my anxieties for an adrenaline rush that can still be felt through my memories. Closing my eyes and thinking back to that hot, summer night I can still hear the sweet riffs of punk rock in its purest form. The drummer was on fire. The bassist was pure power. And the front-man had turned everyone in the crowd, including myself, into pure energy. My music had wrapped itself around and around inside of me....   [tags: Personal Narrative Essay Example] 392 words

Free Narrative Essays - Josie's Triumph - Josie's Triumph Even though I am the older brother and she's the younger sister, Josie was always a head taller, and a good 40 pounds heavier than me when we were growing up. I hated that. I was the big brother. I was supposed to be dominant and protective. But while she was the biggest kid in school, I was nearly the smallest. Josie's size and strength only made my lack of those two qualities more apparent.

Personal Narrative Essay - The Ski Trip - The Ski Trip Standing in awe, cold air permeated through my hair. The smell of fresh and minty pine scent complimented the beautiful vantage of the wilderness. With my boots wedged in the snow, a shiver took over my body. This is was a place of peacefulness and tranquility. Never before had I been so close with nature. Facing the north was the vast forest. To the left and right, only the crystal white snow was visible.

It was sunny out, but there was a slight breeze blowing the tent around, making it hard to set up.

Personal Narrative - I Don’t Want to Cry - I Don’t Want to Cry Tonight, I punched a child in the stomach. He gasped for air, his face grew red, and his eyes got watery. Granted, we were at Karate class and we were sparring. And, granted, I was 19 and he was likely 10. I hadn’t meant to hurt him; I had actually been “going light.” But I hurt him. The fact is, he knew it and didn’t care. He could have continued the night without a single tear.
