Once you have published your player narrative as a page on your site, you’ll need to also publish a post about the narrative that links to the page. That post serves three fundamental functions:
- it provides a compelling preview of your narrative that summarizes your controlling idea in a sentence or two;
- it reflects on what you have learned in the process of writing your literacy narrative;
- when your post syndicates to the class site, that constitutes turning in your narrative.
Some questions to consider in your reflection:
- How did you approach this essay differently because of the work you had already done writing your literacy narrative? Even though the freewriting questions were the same, did that process change for you because you were writing about playing games instead of about reading and writing?
- In just one or two sentences, describe the structure of your player narrative.
- What new idea did you learn while you were writing this player narrative?
