    October 14, 2019 by Mr Richo

    RECOUNT DESIGN BRIEF

     

    By now, you should have selected an aspect of Grade 6 to investigate and write about. 

     

    Within your recount, you need to make sure you include the following.

     

    Describing the incident:

    • Who was involved?
    • How would you describe the people?
    • Describe how the surroundings appeared to you at the time.
    • What exactly happened? Why was it memorable?

    Describing how you felt:

    • How did you feel at the time?
    • How do you feel about it now?
    • Remember, a personal incident is not just a story about something that happened. It is a reflection on how a past incident played a specific role in shaping who a person has become.
