The Common Core English Language Arts Standards separates writing into three text types: narrative, informative/explanatory, and argument. Narrative may seem the simplest of these, but when we dig into the standards a bit, we see that this type of writing is quite complex. This open institute focuses on the skills and strategies required to construct a variety of narrative texts, and explores the potential of narrative writing to address Common Core language standards, as well.
