These standards-based narrative task cards are a great tool to enhance your narrative unit. Whether your students are writing a memoir, personal reflection, college application essay, Gothic story, or another type of narrative, these cards will help them focus their writing on the 9-12 Common Core narrative standards.

These narrative task cards include a print-ready PDF, an editable version, and a digital version. This resource also includes three versions with slightly different wordings to use as a model/exemplar review, peer review, and self-review.

These cards can be used as a station activity, with groups rotating around the classroom and responding to the tasks on each card. The cards can also be given to each student as an individual activity. A tracking form is included for students to fill out as they interact with each card.
