What missed opportunities are there for teachers who do not recognize the personal narrative’s natural advantages over fiction! If you understand fiction at all, you understand that it is its... More > realistic, not fantastical, elements that make it so appealing. Fictional plots, settings, and characters have to seem real to the reader in order for them to be interesting—plots have to make sense, descriptions of settings must seem familiar, and characters’ thoughts must, at least vaguely, mirror our own thoughts. But even with the best fiction writers, the imagination sometimes can produce false fabrications. Personal narratives, such as those studied in this book, are for the most part not fabrications, but represent the real thoughts, feelings, and situations of real people. This study guide covers material not found in the reader, specifically Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar and Porchat’s Three Months Under the Snow. Note that the study guide takes a Christian perspective.
