This PowerPoint is an overview of the 3 types of writing within common core: narrative, argumentative, and informative.
There is an informational slide for each type of writing which includes the definition, characteristics and format. There is also a visual graphic organizer to represent each of the three types of writing. Each type of writing also includes the standards and the rubric for grading.
This is geared toward 8th grade CA Common Core standards, but could easily be adapted.
