Background Brief

The Background Brief concept teaches students how to tell a complete narrative. The narrative can be as simple as telling someone what you did over the weekend or can be a longer story, but it must include the who, what, when, and where of the story. The Background Brief includes all of these important details a listener needs to be able to understand the story. If students don't use the Background Brief, others may become confused.
