Male student in class

In this lesson, students continue revising the drafts of their narrative essays. Students first review the purpose and use of narrative techniques. Through discussion and examination of one effective and one less effective paragraph, students further develop their understanding of an effective use of narrative technique. Students then have an opportunity to independently revise their essays.
