Σαρβανίδου, Δέσποινα/ Sarvanidou, Despina

The aim of this study was to investigate the narrative skills of 4th and 5th graders using Labov’s narrative model. The research involved 28 students, from whom 56 written narratives of real and imaginary events were collected. The analysis showed that students’ written narrative speech is converging to a significant extent with Labov’s model. However, variations have also been identified. The analysis revealed two categories of narratives: narratives of past events and narratives of recurring events. Additionally, the use of verb tenses that are inconsistent with corresponding analyzes of Greek narratives and the limited use of internal evaluation were the most important deviations from the model, which require particular attention from the teacher. Finally, there were no differences in narrative development between the two classes
