Read the paragraph from nick’s personal narrative. standing alone in my family’s barn, i thought about how much hard work and time my parents had invested—how much hard work and time we had all invested—in maintaining a fully operational farm. i did not remember a time when my clothes had not reeked of manure or my hair had not held fast to brittle pieces of straw. what would happen if my parents had to sell the farm so we could move closer to my grandparents? just as i was attempting to imagine a life in the city, a sudden commotion erupted and interrupted my thoughts. with animals squawking and dust flying, i scrambled to pinpoint the source of this unexpected intrusion. in seconds that felt more like minutes, i was successful . . and i could scarcely believe what my eyes were seeing. which element of a personal narrative would be best for nick to include next?
It allows Nick to surprise the reader by disrupting the calm setting with unexpected excitement.
Chronological order is when the events are listed in the order in which they happen. The paragraph begins with Nick in quiet contemplation about how his life will change if his parents decide to move to the city. This is then interrupted by "a sudden commotion". The word choices of sudden, commotion, erupted, interrupted, squawking, flying, intrusion create the unexpected excitement. Since the paragraph is in chronological order the reader finds out about the commotion as Nick does and is also startled by it.
nick should say how he became succesful
4. Nick will need to go back and relate the events that led up to that moment in the story.
Nick needs to show what happened to get her into those thoughts. That's because an exciting part will always be based on past events, so in order for the reader to understand and get excited about what's being told, Nick will need to come back and report the events that led to that moment in the story.
A). A precise description of what the writer is witnessing when he says that he "could scarcely believe what [his] eyes were seeing".
Personal narratives are demonstrated as the narratives written in first person that are primarily intending to relate a personal event or experience of one's life to entertain, inform, convey a message, or merely reiterate an experience.
As per the question, the element that Nick must include next is displayed through option A as it maintains the continuity of the previous description in order to keep the experience or event that is being described in coherence and systematic order. The description of the 'what the writer witnesses when he says 'he could scarcely...seeing' carries the narrative forward in coherence. Thus, option A is the correct answer.
b) It allows Nick to surprise the reader by disrupting the calm setting with unexpected excitement.
A chronological order of events begins with the earliest one and follows the senquence in the order that they happened. In that respect, in the paragraph from Nick’s personal narrative, Nick starts by talking about how hard he and his parents have worked in the farm. However, he suddenly causes a disturbance and interrupts the tranquility of the scene when he wonders how his life would be in the city if they moved closer to his grandparents.
If he didn't use chronological order, the events of the passage would not be in order. Chronological order is arranging things in the order it happened. Its effects on the arrangement of the plot are he is not actually doing, he is thinking all of this
Nick will need to go back and relate the events that led up to that moment in the story.
The correct answer is the following.
When Nick uses chronological order to relate his narrative the effect he has on his narrative is that he involves the reader in the sequence of the actions and this creates interest and somewhat a little bit of tension on the reader side. The reader could be asking itself what he/she would do in a scenario like that.
When Nick reminds all the personal situations he has lived in the farm, makes the reader feel some kind of nostalgy and thinking on what could be Nick’s future in his parents decide to move closer to the grandparents home. An excerpt of the text put it this way: “Just as I was attempting to imagine a life in the city, a sudden emotion erupted and interrupted my thoughts”. It makes the reader follow this dynamic and imagining on the unknown future for Nick.
this is from his own point of view
