*As a refresher here is brief synopsis of narration. Narration is a technique that helps students assimilate knowledge. After a single reading (for younger students, an adult does the reading) the student is asked to tell back or write (as in the above assignment) what they just heard. This process, called narration, helps a student relate back a literary passage of a book in their own words and increases the mind’s ability to remember.
