This file includes ten narratives with pieces missing! Students are challenged to use creativity and inference skills to fill in the missing pieces and then revise for a specific Common Core narrative skill (using transitions, creating and sequencing events, using powerful language, incorporating descriptions of characters and events, and introducing characters).
A quick self-scoring and teacher-scoring tool is attached to the bottom of each narrative. Standards correlate with 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade Language Arts.
Also included is a data tracker that students can use to plot their own scores and reflect upon their progress toward mastery of each skill.
These writing practice pages can be equally useful with high achieving students, who try to find the most outlandish connections between the blips and struggling writers, who need extra support.
