Common Core Writing Standards

I can write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, relevant descriptive details, and well-structured event sequences.  I...

  • Engage and orient the reader by establishing a context and introducing a narrator and/or characters; organize an event sequence that unfolds naturally and logistically.

  • Use narrative techniques, such as dialogue, pacing, and description, to develop experiences, events, and/or characters.

  • Use a variety of transition words, phrases, and clauses to convey sequence and signal shifts from one time frame or setting to another.

  • Use precise words and phrases, relevant descriptive details, and sensory language to convey experiences and events.

  • Provide a conclusion that follows from the narrated experiences or events.

I demonstrate a good grasp of standard writing conventions (e.g., spelling, punctuation, capitalization, grammar and usage, paragraphing) and use conventions effectively to enhance readability.
