Select one (1) of the following prompts for your Narrative Essay:




  •        Is there a special object or family tradition that is important to everyone in your family? For example, do you have an heirloom that has been handed down through generations, a quilt your grandmother made, or a special way of celebrating birthdays? For a younger relative – perhaps even for someone who hasn’t been born yet – describe this family treasure or tradition in as much detail as you can.


  •          Write a description of a particular time and place that you know well, such as your room on a rainy afternoon, the video arcade after school, or the waiting area at your doctor’s office on a busy day. Use as many specific sensory details a you can. Try to capture the moment – and share how you felt about it.


  •        The Good and the Bad. Think about an event in your life that seemed bad but turned out to be good. Maybe you got injured and while you were waiting for your broken leg to heal, you learned how to use a computer. What makes the event change from bad to good may be something that you learned as a result, something that you did differently as a result, or something that happened that wouldn’t have occurred otherwise. Tell the story of the event that you experienced and help your readers understand how an event that seemed negative turned out to have valuable consequences.


  •        Many comedians make jokes about everyday life. Think about a time in your life that has been funny. Tell what happened.
