publishing a personal narrative
Publishing a Personal Narrative

Writing can be published in a variety of ways:

  • It can be displayed on a bulletin board
  • It can be made into a book by putting the pages between covers.
  • It can be collected with other pieces of writing and published in an anthology.
  • It can be submitted for publication to a local newspaper or national magazine
  • It can be published in a school newspaper
  • It can be read aloud to the class or another group

An autobiography tells the story of the author’s life, while a biography is about someone else’s life.

  • What kinds of people write autobiographies?
  • Who might be interested in reading such books?
  • What autobiographies have you read? Why did you read it? What did you learn from reading about that person’s life?
  • Might someone your age write an autobiography?

Using a Dictionary or Glossary

A dictionary is used to clarify the spelling, pronunciation, usage, and definition of words; it is arranged in alphabetical order; and it has guide words.

Your Student Anthology glossary shares all of these characteristics, although it will only give the meaning and part of speech of a word as it is used in you book’s selections.
