Write and Revise Narratives

Instructional Resource

Students can produce effective narrative writing for a range of purposes and audiences. Target 1a focuses on students composing specific parts (beginning, middle, or ending) of a narrative text, whereas Target 1b focuses on students revising at the sentence or paragraph level. Students will need to be able to write and revise parts of a narrative, such as beginnings, transitions, or endings, to create or improve a logical flow of events in a story, and they will need to be able to elaborate using narrative techniques such as descriptive details (including sensory language) and dialogue to develop and improve given events/experiences.
