Learning Goal: I’m working on a english exercise and need guidance to help me learn.
The purpose of this assignment is to practice a narrative genre and to build a classroom community through reading and learning about your peers’ stories. Narratives are an important part of our everyday life both in and out of school. Intentionally or unintentionally, as we interact with others, we engage in narrating our experiences and feelings in the various experiences. Writing about one of your important stories will help you to make sense of your lived experiences. Additionally, listening to others’ stories will raise awareness and appreciation of other people’s lives.
This assignment has the following goals:
Learning to write a concise, well-organized, and engaging story following narrative genre conventions.
Learning about yourself through thinking about and writing down your lived experiences—the experiences which shaped aspects of your social and academic identity.
Engaging in peer review activities and practicing giving and receiving feedback.
Practicing a multimodal composition by incorporating pictures, sounds, or videos into your text.
In this assignment, you will compose a narrative of an important event, a person(s), a moment, an experience, a place, etc., which impacted your life. You will provide enough details about the people (characters), the setting, and the time so that your audience would be able to walk in your shoes and have a clear picture of what you have experienced. Ensure the story is something you can share in the class since you will share it with your peers and me for feedback. This story should be a multimodal text. In other words, you will have to use visual, linguistic, audio, and/or spatial modalities to deliver your intended meaning. The instructor should approve your story before you start drafting. Your story should have a purpose. It should make a point that can be connected with a larger social context.
Your potential audience is your classmates and your instructor.

Some Writing Tips
