Question description

Write a 500 word narration essay on one of the topics from the list provided below . Althoug narratives serve a variety of purposes, the most succesful ones usually share three basic characteristics: they are clearly organized in time, make a central point, and contain specific details relevant to that point.

Narration is one of the most common types of professional writing, and it seeks to answer the basic question "What happened?"

The main goal of narration is to tell a story.

Select one of the following topics to produce your Final Narration Essay Exam :

1 - A first date.

2 - An incident that revealed the true character of someone you knew.

3 - An experience that caused you to learn something about yourself.

4 - An event that placed you in danger.

5- A typical day at school or your job.

Choose your essay structure carefully. Avoid including details that do not serve to advance or complete your narration. I expect your essay to contain a strong introduction that includes your essay's thesis, a coherent and focused body that effectively transitions from paragraph to paragraph, and a rich conclusion that provides closure for your narration.

Use all the resources you have available to complete this exam. Refer to your textbook for strategies and tips on student writing. I strongly recommend that you read chapter 9 to refresh your knowledge of the narration mode.

Note: An essay can be structured in many ways. The five paragraph essay is the most basic essay structure. Because the required length for your essay in this course is 500 words, the five paragraph model best suits your writing objectives. However, do not allow these guidelines to limit your writing; if you wish to write more than three body paragraphs to illustrate your paper’s thesis, then do so. The guidelines that follow can be applied to all the essays you write for this course. Your essays should vary in type (i.e. descriptive; narrative, comparison/contrast; argumentative), and not so much in structure. THE FIVE PARAGRAPH (500 word) ESSAY OUTLINED TITLE: The title should reflect the main idea of the essay. The title should be concise and interesting. PARAGRAPH 1: Introduction The essay’s introduction should consist of a minimum of five sentences. The introductory paragraph should begin with a general statement that reflects the essay’s topic. The paragraph will likely include transitional sentences or background information sentences that will then lead the reader into the writer’s purpose – the thesis statement. The thesis statement is what the writer will prove throughout his/her essay in the body paragraphs. The thesis should include a plan of development; it should consist of the writer’s position on the paper topic and the three points the writer will describe in the essay’s body to prove his/her position (Thesis example: The hiking trip was a disaster because (1) it rained the whole time, (2) we lost our camping equipment, (3) and our guide broke his leg.) BODY PARAGRAPHS 2,3,& 4: Each of the body paragraphs should begin with a topic sentence. If the writer has used the three point thesis model, writing each body paragraph’s topic sentence should be easy. The first body paragraph’s topic sentence, for example, should reflect the first point in the thesis statement (refer to the above thesis example – i.e. The torrential rains ruined the trip.). It then becomes the writer’s task to develop and support the point – these are your body paragraph’s supporting sentences. Once the writer effectively illustrates the first point, he/she will then proceed to the second point and follow the same guidelines for paragraph development (point two will introduce body paragraph two, and point three will introduce paragraph three). PARAGRAPH 5: The Conclusion In this paragraph, the writer’s task is to “complete” the essay. The function of the conclusion is to provide closure for the reader. The writer will remind the reader of his/her thesis by reviewing the points made in the essay’s body (Note: be careful not to restate the point’s exactly). To close the last paragraph, the writer may include his/her final perspective on the essay’s topic.
[Student’s Last Name]1 [Student’s Name] [Instructor’s Name] [Course Title] 14 April 2017 [Research Paper Title] The Modern Language Association (MLA) provides guidelines for documentation style. This template is based on commonly used guidelines from the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (6th edition) and the MLA Style Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing (2nd edition). For more information about MLA style and publications, go to the MLA website at: www.mla.org. For example, quotations with fewer than four lines of prose or three lines of verse are quoted directly in the sentence. Enclose them in quotation marks, followed by the author’s last name and the page or pages of the source from which you are quoting in parenthesis, for example: “inline quotation here” (AuthorSurname 31). Quotations that are longer than four lines of prose or three lines of verse follow different guidelines. Introduce these quotations with a colon: Start long quotations on a new line. Indent the quote one inch from the left margin. Double-space the lines and omit quotation marks. Reference the source as you would for a shorter quotation. To quickly format a quotation of over four lines or three lines of verse, use the Long quotation style provided in this Microsoft Word template. Per MLA guidelines, all sources must be listed on a Works Cited page at the end of the paper. Center the title, Works Cited, and then list sources in alphabetical order by author last [Student’s Last Name]2 name. Some examples are provided on the next page. To format sources, start with the Works cited style provided in this template but refer to the MLA publications listed above for complete formatting guidelines.
