What is a narrative?
The definition of a narrative is different in ELA and social studies. A narrative is a story. It has… Characters Plot Conflict (a problem to be solved, usually) Details
What is a narrative? It also has A beginning = introduction A middle = what happens An end = what did people learn OR how were people affected
What is a narrative? We are mostly interested in a story when it tells us how it helped or hurt people OR how it changed people.
What is a narrative?
In that narrative… Characters – the crazy, witch-finding girls Plot – Girls in Salem go crazy, accuse people of witchcraft, people die, illness caused by fungus in grain. Conflict – Why were girls accusing people of witchcraft? Details – weather in summer 1691, name of the grain fungus
What is a narrative? In that narrative… Beginning – in 1691, girls accused people in Salem, MA of witchcraft. Middle – Many people died, and it’s thought the girls were hallucinating from a fungus in the grain the town ate. End – Eventually, the accusations stopped…but we still don’t know for sure what caused it.
BUT REMEMBER… We only care about how what people learned or how the story affected people. Many people died for no reason (how the story affected people) People learned that saying that someone did something when they didn’t can be dangerous (what people learned).
