Narrative Essay Powerpoint For Middle School

The Narrative Diamond can be used as a pre-writing graphic organizer to plan a narrative. This provides a simple, basic story plan on which to build. Student’s can use organizers like this to help them translate their story summary or pre-writing plan to a fully elaborated piece of writing. The Narrative Diamond is needed to guide beginners through the development and the elaboration of a successful, entertaining narrative story.

The diamond is, essentially, a reminder of the shape and proportion that a successful story takes, as well as a reminder of the key skill elements needed for an entertaining piece of writing.

Consider providing students with a copy of the Writing Diamond for their writing folders to help them organize and develop their stories.

Remember – the diamond is not a rigid rule or formulaic pattern – rather, it is a basic guide to help students channel their creativity into what others recognize as story. In time, the diamond will disappear into the writing, providing shape and structure for their creative ideas.
