Product Description
Understanding the Differences Between Narrative, Expository and Argumentative Prompts

Perfect for Standardized Test Prep

This resource is a complete lesson plan and student materials to help students understand the different types of writing (narrative, expository and argumentative) required in the Common Core State Standards. This resource is most strongly aligned to the prompts students will see on the TNReady assessment, but could easily be applied to the PARCC, Smarter Balance or other similar test.
In this resource, students practice reading prompts that require narrative writing, expository writing and argumentative writing and, using key words, to understand what type of writing the prompt requires.
This lesson on types of writing contains:
1. Four short texts about different types of writing argumentative writing, narrative writing and expository writing with questions.
2. A graphic organizer listing the differences between each type of writing that students create using the passages.
3. A practice page with narrative, argumentative and expository prompts. Students must use the key words in the prompt to decide what type of writing they are supposed to do.
4. An exit ticket with three multiple choice questions and one open-ended question that requires students to create their own writing prompt using key words.
5. A complete answer key for all parts of the lesson.
This resource is most suited as a beginning of the year lesson or for test prep.
