Abstract: This paper includes a framework for combining narrative and logico-scientific thinking in the consumption and production of stories about the real world, such as journalistic and historical accounts. The framework involves graphical representation, at an intermediate level of abstraction, in "storygrams" showing sequences of actions involving agents, using cultural tools, to serve goals, within contexts of interpreted scenes. The framework also involves four elements of "narrative metacognition", including monitoring of perspectives, precedents, symbolism and narrative frames. Utilizing this framework may help learners better develop their facility at moving back and forth between assessments of "narrative truth" and "logico-scientific truth".
