This book is focused on developing the narrative writing skills described in the Common Core State Standards. It is divided into 12 set of exercises, tasks, and writing prompts. Each set introduces the skill, provides an example, and then offers guided tasks and exercises that allow to students to understand and apply the skill.
The sets cover event sequences and event order, plot, main problems, setting, character development, and theme. The sets also cover using dialogue, using concrete and sensory details, using transitions, and writing in first-person.
The skills developed match those listed in the CCSS, and can be applied to writing both short stories and personal narratives.
The division into 12 sets makes them perfect for homework, classroom activities, or weekly skill development.
