Homework Help: english

Posted by Sylvie on Monday, February 8, 2010 at 1:15pm.

I have to do a project on 4 types of writing. Fictional narrative, Personal narrative, Informational writing and Persuasive writing.

The project consists of giving characteristics of each, as well as 2 prompts (examples) for each.

This is what I have so far. Please tell me if it is correct.

FICTIONAL NARRATIVE WRITING

GOAL: Tells a story or part of a story.

CHARACTERISTICS:

* Main characters, minor characters,
& character development
* Dialogue- Reveals character;
advances plot
* Setting - time, place, mood, &
atmosphere
* Plot with a central conflict
* Point of View - Fist person, third
person
* Beginnings, Transitions, and
Endings

PROMPTS: I need help with 2 examples for Fictional Narrative Writing.



PERSONAL NARRATIVE WRITING

GOAL: the writer relates an event, incident or experience in his or her own life.

CHARACTERISTICS:

order in which they actually
occurred
* Expresses the writer's thoughts
and feelings

and/or how it affected the writer
