Prewriting and Outlining for the Narrative Essay
This week, you will be preparing for next week’s essay: the narrative. Take a moment and
review the directions for the Week 3 narrative essay. Once you have a topic you want to write
your narrative about, you will complete this two part assignment: prewriting and outlining.
Part I
The first part of this assignment will help you “flesh out” your topic. Take 10-15 minutes to free
write about your topic. Chapters 4 and 5 in your textbook can help you decide what kind of free
writing you want to do, but don’t feel restricted by one genre. Write down everything that
pertains to your topic, including questions your readers might have. Don’t worry about grammar
or sentence structure; this is a brainstorming activity.
Part II
Next, create an outline as a preliminary structure for the narrative essay. Use several of the
outlining rules on pp. 111-115 of The Writer’s Way, but be sure to include the following:



Outline in three to five parts only (rule no. 1)
Don’t describe; summarize (no. 5)
Outline whole sentences only (no. 8)
You may use as many of the other rules as you feel necessary. The goal is to present a
structure for how your final essay may look. As such, an outline is not a series of paragraphs or
a rough draft. Here is a sample freewrite and outline that you can use to help you get started.
Please submit your responses to both prompts in a single document.

Narrative Essay WK 3
This essay explores the Narrative Mode, which is perhaps the most natural style of writing for
most people.
One of the goals of the narrative form is to allow readers to feel as if they are not simply reading
someone else’s story, but that they are somehow part of it. Unlike simply telling a story though,
a narrative essay has a specific piece of information to share, a lesson for the reader. There
should be a clear reason for your telling the story. This is where the “essay” in the narrative
essay becomes apparent.
Your assignment this week is to write such an essay. Refer back to your outline of a significant
event that you wrote for W2. Keep in mind that you are writing a story and it is important to
freely tell your story. But, this is still an academic essay. The goal of your story is to support a
clearly stated thesis/lesson for the reader. As such, your tale should be wrapped in a clear
introduction and conclusion.
Criteria
Your essay should contain the following basic features:




An introduction with an attention grabbing opening (hook), a well-defined message or
argument (thesis), and any background information the reader needs to fully understand
your story;
Body paragraphs which a tell the story of your clear and specific, singular event that
illustrates the essay thesis;
Vivid language that works to recreate the event, including descriptions of where the
event took place, the people who were involved, and the things these people said and
did;
A conclusion that briefly implicitly or explicitly reviews your story, reiterates the lessons
you learned and that you hope the reader to learn, and provides a closing thought such
as
o why this event is still personally significant,
o the state of your life since the event and how you feel about it,
o future plans related to the event,
o rhetorical questions for the reader, etc.
In addition to the above, the final draft of your essay should be:




From 250-500 words in length, typed in Times New Roman 12pt. font, double-spaced,
with one-inch margins.
Uses APA style (a title page and citations as needed which are modeled in your APA
guide),
Written in first person;
Edited for spelling, mechanical, grammatical, and typing errors

Free Write and Outline for an Informative Paper
This week, we will be moving from narrative writing to informative writing. Your assignment this week
will consist of a free write and outline similar to those you did for Week 2; however, this free write and
outline will focus on a topic for an informative essay. Please jump ahead and review the instructions for
the Week 5 essay; there are only two options, a how-to essay or a profile. Your free write and outline
must reflect a topic suitable for one or the other
Your outline should be similar to the one used for Week 2. It will also contain an introduction,
body, and conclusion, each with topic sentences and supporting points. Here is a link to the
sample outline for Week 2.
For your outline, please complete ALL of the following statements or questions:
The audience for my paper is ___________
What I want them to do/think is _________
Which essay prompt am I focusing on?
What is my topic?
What is the goal of my essay?
What details will I need to accomplish this goal?
What issues might I encounter?
What is my working title?
WK5
Informative Essay
For this assignment, write an Informative Essay. Choose one of the following: a Profile or a
How-to essay (Writer’s Way, Chapter 13). See below for details:
a. Profile: Interview someone you do not know or do not know well. Find an “angle” that
will make this person unique or interesting to readers and focus on this angle in your
profile. (For an example, read “Victor,” by Solvejg Wastvedt in WW pp. 226-227; notice
how the angle being explored is Victor’s use of things people might throw away.)
Describe the person so the reader has a dominant impression of him or her. Work in
quotes from your subject as necessary. Do not refer to yourself in the essay.

Note: Do not turn in your interview. Your Profile should be written in essay form,
not as a series of questions and answers.
b. How-to: Write an essay explaining how to do something specialized or out of the
ordinary. Make your essay interesting and engaging, and write to a specific audience
that needs to know or can benefit from learning how to perform this task. (For example,
everyone needs to know how to change a tire, but an essay about changing a tire will be
more effective if it targets college freshmen who commute to campus.) Include several of
the Eight Teaching Tips (WW, pp. 240-242) and be sure to avoid COIK (pp. 239-240).
Do not refer to yourself in the essay.
Additional requirements for your Informative Essay:


500-700 words
APA Style (title page, running heads, 12-pt. Times New Roman, double spaced,
etc.)
WK6
Persuasive Essay Rough Draft
This essay explores the persuasive mode, one of the more common kinds of writing you’ll
experience throughout your college and professional career. Your goal is to persuade your
audience to consider your position on a controversial, two-sided subject.
This five paragraph persuasive essay (introduction, 3 body paragraphs and a conclusion) is
made up of the following:



A clear persuasive thesis statement in the first paragraph after the topic is introduced
and the importance of the issue is clear to the reader
Logical transitions between the into, the body, and the conclusion
Body paragraphs that support the persuasive thesis with evidence as well as address
the opposing viewpoints

A conclusion that wraps up all the information presented in the body
Utilize your pre-writing and outlining strategies from week two to help you organize and plan
your essay. It is not required to have research and source material for this essay, though it can
greatly help support your argument. Using sources shows how your ideas build upon the ideas
of previous writers and why your claims merit consideration — because they are supported by
credible experts in their field. If you do use source material from the EBSCO library, please give
credit to the author with in-text citations and a references page using APA formatting.
Criteria
The rough draft of your essay should contain the following basic features:




A well-defined issue that is controversial by nature
A clear thesis statement that demonstrates the position you will be taking throughout the
essay
A counter argument defending the opposing viewpoint
A refutation to or compromise with the counter argument
In addition to the above, the rough draft of your essay should be:



From 500 to 700 words in length, typed in Times New Roman, 12pt. font, doublespaced, with one inch margins
Written primarily in third person
Edited for spelling, mechanical, grammatical, and typing errors
Please note: you will have the opportunity to revise and perfect this essay, but you should do
your best to make this draft as complete as possible so you can receive more relevant feedback
from your instructor.
In addition submitting this assignment in the drop box, you need to submit it to the Week 7
discussion forum for peer review next week.

Persuasive Essay Final Draft
This assignment calls for you to revise your Persuasive Essay from week six into a final draft. All good
writers revise their work, often multiple times. Revising isn’t just looking for grammatical errors; editing
alone is not revision (though we do want you to edit too). Revision literally means to “see again.” In the
revision process, you improve your analytical skills, sometimes challenging your own ideas which can
serve to deepen your argument.
Review the feedback your instructor provided on your rough draft as well as the information from the
peer review in week seven. As you begin revising your paper, be sure to consider the following:







Did I fulfill the assignment criteria?
Did I say what I intended to say?
Do I have a two-sided topic?
Is my thesis persuasive in nature?
Do all my paragraphs serve to support my thesis?
Is my argument convincing, my support logical, my evidence sufficient?
Does my conclusion sum up the essay?
Criteria
The final draft of your essay should contain the same basic features as the rough draft:







A well-defined issue that is controversial by nature
A clear thesis statement that demonstrates the position you will be taking throughout the
essay
A counter argument with at least one credible source defending the opposing viewpoint
A refutation to or compromise with the counter argument
From 500 to 700 words in length, typed in Times New Roman, 12pt. font, doublespaced, with one inch margins
Written primarily in third person
Edited for spelling, mechanical, grammatical, and typing errors
The most important criteria for your final draft is that it is revised version of the rough draft!
