I can identify the impact of writer’s craft moves including:
Tone and diction
Imagery and diction
How writers focus and establish purpose
How writers lead and end pieces
I can identify and explain memoir characteristics.
I can annotate a passage with specific details about the writer's craft and impact on the reader.
I can sustain focus and build stamina in daily independent reading.
I created a narrative with well-developed characters whose interactions build tension and change over time. I used that story to comment on a social issue, teach a lesson, and/or develop a particular point of view.
I wrote a beginning establishing a situation, place, and/or atmosphere; foreshadowing the problem(s); and hinting at questions, issues, ideas, or themes. I introduced a particular narrative voice and point of view.
I used transitional phrases and clauses, grammatical structures to demonstrate the passage of time, to connect parts of the story, to imply cause and effect, to raise questions, and/or to make allusions (long before, as when, just as, without realizing, ever afterward).
I gave the reader a sense of closure by returning to a theme, and/or revealing how characters change or make a change. If there wasn’t resolution, I made a connection to a larger issue or mood that added to the meaning of the whole story or suggested social commentary.
I developed characters across scenes, offering insight into their troubles, hopes, relationships, and giving clues about how they change.
I used setting to create mood and add to meaning.
I used symbolism or metaphor for subtle as well as obvious connections to a theme.
I varied the pace and tone to develop tension and/or develop different perspectives across the text.
I checked my spelling for accuracy, double-checking for misused homonyms and technological-created misspellings.
I was accurate and purposeful with conventions, using them to enhance the pace and tone of the text. If I broke conventions, it was purposefully (for example, using fragments or dialect) when appropriate to the genre and purpose.
