Based on the Tennessee Academic 9-12 Writing Standards & Rubric, this checklist will ensure that your students have included all of the necessary components of a Narrative Essay. It also includes embedded examples, sentence starters, punctuation modeling for incorporating dialogue, and a Graphic Organizer to walk student through the plot of a story in a formulaic, sequential way. Designed with Inclusion Special Education in mind, it is essentially the Official Rubric reduced to a checklist written in simple language that is easy to follow along and flexible across prompts. Suggested Use: Print on front and back so students can use easily without losing it, hole punch to keep in their binders, laminate for multiple uses, or give to your struggling writers each time they have a narrative essay prompt. Available as a Word Doc you may edit as needed.
