Q. What is the best way to write in narrative format when responding to a case study?

I need to write in a narrative response


Narration refers to telling a story.  The story can be based on real events or fiction.  When we narrate, we recall the facts of what happened and relay them to someone who was not there to witness the event.  A narrative essay or descriptive essay generally follows the five paragraph standard essay, but be sure to check with your instructor for specific assignment requirements. 

Formatting Guidelines: 

  • typed in one of the APA 7th edition approved fonts
  • double spaced
  • one-inch margins
  • one half inch indentation at the beginning of a paragraph
  • no extra spacing between paragraphs
  • include a cover page
  • header with  page number
For more information on APA and formatting, view the Formatting page of the APA Guide.
