While the thought of essay writing may elicit a collective groan from your students, the choice of topic can alleviate some of the apprehension. This lesson provides teachers with cultural narrative essay topics designed for classroom use.

Cultural Narrative

Cultural narrative essays serve a number of purposes. For example, they enable authors to explore a specific aspect of culture in ways that can be both insightful and informative. When writing this type of essay, it's important for students to focus on a single or specific cultural aspect in order to keep an essay focused and informative without becoming too diluted. Cultural essays are also a great starting point for class discussions and debates, so be sure to encourage your learners to share their thoughts and ideas with classmates.

Before assigning any of the narrative essay topics in the next section, it can be helpful to provide your students with a framework with which they can structure and organize their writing. Write the following on the blackboard as you explain each element of the process.
