Common Core Curriculum alignment
Write narratives in which they recount a well-elaborated event or short sequence of events, include details to describe actions, thoughts, and feelings, use temporal words to signal event order, and provide a sense of closure.
Write routinely over extended time frames (time for research, reflection, and revision) and shorter time frames (a single sitting or a day or two) for a range of discipline-specific tasks, purposes, and audiences.
Orient the reader by establishing a situation and introducing a narrator and/or characters; organize an event sequence that unfolds naturally.
Use concrete words and phrases and sensory details to convey experiences and events precisely.

It consists of 8 lessons of approximately 60 minutes duration. These lessons may be taught as a complete unit of work, or they may be taught individually as stand-alone lessons. The sequence of lessons and suggested time frames should be regarded as a guide only; teachers should pace lessons in accordance with the individual learning needs of their class. Teachers are encouraged to collect samples of students’ work throughout the unit to reflect their learning journey.
