Today I finally finished my Historical Narrative about the Eureka Stockade. Here are five pointers to help you write a good Historical Narrative:
It wont be a Historical Narrative if it doesn’t have facts because then it should be called a Narrative
- To let your imagination run wild
It is ok to let your imagination into your work because it make it your Historical Narrative but don’t forget to put those fatc in there
- Use language that your Historical Narrative takes place in the setting and the year it’s placed in.
It is important to use language that your Historical Narrative takes place and the year it’s in because then it makes your Historical Fiction more realistic and it makes the writing better
- It is best to research your Historical event
You should research you Historical event because then you have background information on your event and that makes it easier to write
- Explain key facts and places in the text
It is easy to forget to explain your facts because you can be so caught up in the ‘Narrative’ part of the story and not focusing on the ‘Historical’ part of the story
So that five pointers to write a excellent Historical Narrative, but if you could write a Historical Narrative what would it be and why?
Today we had an incursion and it showed us all about how people migrated to Australia. His name is Emilio and his production/play is called CIAO! He showed us a video about how his father migrated to Australia and his brutal but believable story. Every now and again he would ask for a volunteer and everyone wanted to get up in front of everyone and help in the performance. We danced to the Tarantella and we all smashed heads going into the middle but this one kid had to be taken away from the performance. Then when I finally was a volunteer I had to demonstrate doing the Chicken dance which was as I will call it, HUMILIATION! It was so humiliate getting up in front of all the teachers and students and had to do the chicken dance! As you all now the chicken dance is hard to demonstrate so I was you know terrible at it. But now i was thinking it actually helped me in a way because I know can get up in front of everyone and stay stuff I could not even say to there face! I would give the performance 3 and a half stars, it lost a star cause I had to do the chicken dance in front of everyone!
Yesterday we went to the Immigration Museum in the city. We learnt all about how, when and why people migrated to Australia. We got split into groups and got put into sections in the Museum. While we were there we looked at three types of boats the people immigrated from and the time differences. We interviewed computer generated images of people who wanted to migrate to Australia, We also tried the dictation test, which by the way is REALLY hard. I used my time well to put most of the information on the little passport we got given. I now realise that migrating from a different country isn’t as easy as I thought it was. When we left the museum we went to the Sandridge Bridge. In 2006 the government put glass casing around the bridge to see how many people migrated from their country to Australia. The glass wall showed that there were more immigrants from Italy then there were Vietnam. I wonder why there were a lot of immigrants from Italy and not in a war like country like Vietnam? I wonder if the bigger the country is, the more people migrate from it to go to a less populated country like Australia. What country do you think has the most people leave to go to Australia?
