A resource to help sort [in writing to text, two distinct forms] the two PARCC task models: Type 1 Narrative Story for Fiction Text and Type 2 Narrative Description for Nonfiction Text. Students will clearly understand there is a difference in tasks since one is based on an existing story and another is coming from nonfiction text.
Teachers can use this resource to provide an overview or to have students use as a reference as they begin to write for two different tasks.
Resource comes with slides that explain the type of writing that is involved, how and what to write, two student sample prompts included, one for fiction and one for nonfiction [passage and article are not included].
Upon request it will be sent.
Templates for writing, a list of useful Tier II words are also included.
This resource can be used with middle grades 5-8. One student sample prompt is based on an article slightly over 1000 words, and somewhat complex in nature, another sample prompt is based on a short story used from another product: Prose Constructed Response For Narrative Writing [Story] Task Prompts.
Last, once students understand, you may wish to time students, and if so, use the appropriate planning sheet with time restrictions; otherwise allow students time to plan out their writing ideas until they fully understand the requirements. As much as this resource is instructional in nature, it will also support children as they navigate in the writing to nonfiction text.
