Welcome to our third lesson, everyone.
By the end of today’s lesson, you’ll be able to say, “I used dialogue to reveal a speaker’s thoughts or feelings at the beginning of my personal narrative.”
Remember, a personal narrative is a story that we tell about something that we have personally experienced.
Grab your writing tools and loose parts, and watch today’s video.
When you’re finished watching, start playing around.
Create the beginning of your story by defining the speaker and establishing the setting.
Then (today or another day), watch the video below. Consider how you might use dialogue to reveal your speaker’s thoughts or feelings. Check out my example if you’d like one to follow.
You’ve finished today’s lesson when:
- You’ve watched the video.
- You’ve used what you’ve learned to begin creating the beginning of your personal memoir by building, making, drawing, acting, singing, or talking it out.
- The beginning includes a bit of dialogue that reveals a speaker’s thoughts or feelings.
- You use what you’ve made or performed to write the words that become the beginning of your personal memoir.
