Personal Narrative - A story that is written from a first-person point of view and recounts a personal experience or event. Plot - The sequence of events in a story that are related to each other. Theme - The underlying message or main idea of a story.
Personal narrative writing is often used to help students reflect on their own experiences and values. Personal narratives can include a wide range of topics, ranging from personal experiences to universal themes.
