Things to look for in autobiographical narratives

Things to Look for in Autobiographical Narratives

  • Setting

  • Plot, Conflict & Theme–

  • Characters

  • Voice & Tone –

The where, when, and state of mind of the story

The sequence of the events or action of the story, the tension or battle (Conflict), and what can be or was learned? (Theme)

Who needs to be in your narrative; what do they add; Was I dynamic or Static?

How is your story told; this includes language, attitude, and purpose

Ethos, Pathos, and Logos are instrumental here.

Critical reading analysis

Critical Reading & Analysis

  • To properly comprehend a writing, one must interact with the text. This is accomplished through:

    • Annotating – writing notes in the text

    • Looking at the graphics, subtexts, and bolded texts

    • Asking questions and make statements

    • Identifying new words and ideas

    • Highlighting and underlining the unknown and the known

  • Mark it Up!

Stock language and writing tips

Stock Language and Writing tips

  • Use a writer’s whole name or last name, never just his first name. e.g. John Doe or Doe –never John

  • Use parts of the passage/article to clarify your ideas.

  • Never have examples in your introduction – only purpose and thesis

  • Thesis does not have to have three ideas; now you may have one idea, but several parts of elaboration

  • Always sum up your body paragraph ideas from your topic sentence.

  • Use this format per paragraph:

  • (a) Claim

  • (b) Support

  • (c) Elaboration

  • * Always place the title of articles or short stories in quotation marks

  • Use these every now and then:

  • _ According to [author]

  • _[Writer]says/states/tells/

  • explains

Selected topics
