From what I’ve seen, an education narrative seems to almost always have a plot and the perspective of at least one character. Another thing I picked up on is that usually there is some type of conflict with the character , internally or externally. Im not really into writing so I feel like starting my own narrative would be quite a struggle, but if i had to brainstorm ideas to get started , id probably think of any struggles I’ve had in the past and try to stick to something that i can write in full detail about and hopefully entertain someone else while I’m at it . Some concerns i have about writing a narrative of my own would be finding the proper thing to write about, a time in my life that i feel is worthy to write about. At the end i think the narrative should be entertaining , and i feel like taking something you experienced and turning it into a piece of writing for other people to enjoy is going to be difficult.
ENG 1101 is about you getting more comfortable with your own process. You’ll look at tools and ideas about how language is used to communicate and persuade and even exclude. And you’ll be introduced to concepts like transfer, genre, and metacognition.
AND as part of the Write Out Loud! Learning Community, you’ll also be writing your own TEDTalk that you’ll present in COMM1330
