Mid-Unit 3 Assessment: Drafting a Historical Fiction Narrative based on Expert Trades

Young historians use their planning graphic organizer to prepare a personal narrative draft on expert trades. Since the instructional activity is considered the mid-unit assessment, learners respond to a writing prompt related to the final performance task. During the next instructional activity, they peer-revise these narratives.
