Narrative Procedure
Introduction and Description of Assignment:

During the course of this unit on Body Movement, you will be learning about the anatomical components that allow our bodies to perform the complex movements that they do.

For this assignment, you will be assigned a specific classification and location of a joint in the human body. It is your job to communicate the complexities of how this articulation provides movement through a narrative procedure.

A narrative procedure is a type of writing that details the complexities of a difficult procedure or explains how something works. In this assignment, your job is to explain using text, graphics, and a step by step protocol; how your specific articulation works and provides the movements it does at that location.


In order to do this completely, you will need to discuss the following content pieces:

  • The classification of the joint assigned and the movements permitted by that type of joint (define).

  • The anatomy of the bones including specific “geographic” features that support or limit specific movements in that area.

  • The muscles / tendons that pull the bones, how and where they attach and how they control the movements.

  • The ligaments that support and bind bones – what impact do they have on the movements provided.

  • You should also remember to link form and function throughout your discussion of this articulation.

A narrative procedure has three main components: the guide to action, the procedure, and the conclusion.



  • The guide to action is your introduction. This is where you introduce your topic and explain the importance of understanding the topic you are about to discuss.

  • The procedure is your precise and detailed break down of how this articulation works. You are to use text and non-text (graphics, images, etc.) to explain the workings of the joint. It is important that you anticipate and address misunderstandings or misconceptions in your discussion. You also want to pay attention to the order in which you present your material to ensure the sequence of content makes the most sense to the reader.

  • Finally, you will end with a conclusion. Here you summarize the purpose for the writing. You also may want to connect to why this understanding is important (How does it relate to health, homeostasis, and disease and trauma?)
