Personal Narrative Reflection

Now that you have your personal narrative returned to you, you need to take your time and reflect on the experience of writing it.  Open the reflection-sheet-personal-narrative document and type in your well thought out responses.

You will need to show this reflection sheet and your personal narrative to your parents at the Student-Led Conferences.

If you want to re-write your personal narrative for a grade, you will need to turn it in to me by Thursday morning in homeroom.

Please post your personal narrative and reflection to your blog. If you re-write it, you’ll need to post the newer version as well and include a paragraph explaining what you changed and why.

ALL OF THESE POSTS NEED TO BE IN BOTH  THE “HUMANITIES” CATEGORY AND THE “SLC” CATEGORY.
