Understanding and Using Narrative Time

Project Overview

Students will engage in an interactive study of temporal duration (narrative time) by using interactive web resources and original works of graphic literature that are only available on the web. Through acts of transformation—moving from the visual to the verbal, they will "interpret" various versions of a comic strip—each requiring an attention to narrative time (summary, scene, gap, pause, and stretch).

This RWLO is designed primarily for use with students engaged in the introductory study of fiction writing, but it can also be used in first-year composition classes and possibly literature courses as a means to understanding narrative in writing and reading.
