Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Reflective Writing: A Letter to my Junior Self - Section 1: Warm Up


 For today's letter, I chose narrative.  While I was walking around, I asked kids to explain the narrative technique(s) in their letter.  Most students were able to explain to me what narrative techniques (usually descriptive, sensory language) they used in their letter.  There are some parts of narrative writing that students don't use during this assignment (characters, dialogue), the assignment asks them to be reflective and tell a story.
