CCRS Implementation Team Resources 2014-2015

Appendix B of the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in 
History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects contains annotated writing samples to illustrate the criteria required to meet the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for particular types of writing—argument, informative/explanatory text, and narrative—in each grade. The samples, which are actual writings from Grades K-12 students who attended school in a number of states and districts across the country, should be a valuable resource in interpreting the level of writing demanded by the standards.(page 104)
