Topic: Standards for Writing

NOTE: In my blog, English Updates, I will be completing an in-depth study of the new federal guidelines for English language arts. For other up-to-date reviews of professional articles in English education journals, please see my blog, English Education Archives at

10-second review: Throughout the grades students should write to persuade, to explain (exposition) and to convey real or imagined experience (narrative). By grades 9 – 12, student writing should focus on writing to argue and inform or explain.

Title: “CCSSI (Common Core State Standards Initiative) for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies and Science.” March 10, 2010, p. 3.

Comment: Of course, in creative writing courses, students would continue to pursue narrative writing. And narrative writing plays an important part in expository writing as well. RayS. You will find the standards at RayS.
