Common Core Standards p. 5

This chapter begins with an overview of the K-1 Common Core Writing Standards. There are three major domains of writing in the Common Core State Standards. These include: 1. Narrative (personal and imaginative); 2. Informative/Explanatory (to inform, analyze, describe, or explain); and 3. Opinion/Argument/Persuasive. In addition to the standards is an overview of the Nancy Fetzer stages of writing. These are direct instruction writing lessons packed with best teaching strategies designed to teach each genre. Specific skills are taught at each grade level and provide schoolwide continuity for each genre. A handy table is provided identifying each type of writing and the stages assigned to each grade level to ensure the standards are taught and to provide a schoolwide cohesive and coherent program.
