Skill: Reflective Narrator

-A reflective narrator does not merely recount the events of a story, they look back and analyze them.  He/she may explain the significance, question actions and event, think about what he/she would do if it happened again, discuss lessons learned, or detail what was going through his/her mind during the event. Here’s a nice article on reflective narrators.


Today we will have time in class to revise your personal/college essays, as well as work on the reading assignment.

Make sure your essay has the following:

  • effective lead
  • uses stronger verbs
  • epigraph
  • reflective narrator
