In this final project we will use the Iowa Core Curriculum or other relevant sets of standards in the K-12, Post-Secondary or Commercial world. Identify the outcome you will be pursuing. Begin by looking at the subject area and then look in the grade level.
3. Define Performance Objectives: - Students will write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, descriptive details, and clear event sequences.( Iowa Common Core, W.5.3)
