This chapter focuses on the use of oral narratives as a useful bridge into academic writing for students on tertiary level courses, particularly those who have to produce reflective writing assignments. Key features of narrative discourse are considered, and the ways in which these can be exploited in classroom activities and techniques in order to develop the academic writing and argumentation skills of students from a range of disciplines, including education and product design.
