Reflection #1

October 17, 2019 by shievam2018   

Before this unit I had never formally learned how to write a story. In this unit I learned how to structure a short story. I thought critically to develop ideas for the narrative essay. Specifically in the brainstorming portion and the editing at the end. I had to think of something original to write about and I’m happy to say that I did. Usually my problem with writing is using an idea that isn’t very strong and then the whole essay crumbles because of it. I analyzed in this unit when I was making my graphic organizer. I had to see if there was symbolism in the story or if there was irony of any kind. Meaning that I had to evaluate the story. I gave and received feedback when we did the peer editing exercise. I assessed other peoples’s stories and did my best to improve what I could for them. I also received feedback and took my classmates advice to improve my story.  I also explored different possibilities to get a better outcome. When I was writing the narrative essay, I blurted words onto my page so that I could exhaust every possibility of where my story could go. For example, I said that my protagonist could be murdering because he wants to escape a person or how I said he could have had the protagonist have followers who help him kill. I also questioned if I wanted the story to only take place in the hall that I started the story in.
