Reflection: Standards Alignment Analyzing Chapters 12-14 to Help Write a Narrative - Section 2: Writing a Narrative: Overview and Expectations


W.7.3 asks students to "write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective techniques, relevant descriptive details, and well structured event sequences."

That's quite a bit. As I sat down to plan lessons, I wondered how I could convey all of that to students.  There's characters, plot, dialogue, pacing, imagery, and the list goes on and on and on. How do I make sure that the narratives students are writing are aligned to the standards?

Then I scrolled down on my handy dandy Common Core app by Mastery Connect where it outlines the things that the standards require.  Boom.  There it is.  All I have to do is translate those standards into student friendly language and I've got my assignment sheet. I can also take the standards and create a rubric that can be used to grade the narratives.  Everything is standard aligned and it takes little work on my part. Boom.
