For example, the informational samples collected for this guide on the topic of minerals may use technical vocabulary such as igneous, metamorphic, or sedimentary rocks. Narrative Relating Personal Experience-Writing assignments should direct students to recount an event grounded in their own experiences.
The steps of the writing process prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing should be taught throughout the year, because third graders may not have fully learned this process and will need help applying each stage of the process to each genre of writing.

Teachers collect writing samples by providing many opportunities for students to produce the various types of writing throughout the year.
The writing process should be taught throughout the third grade year, regardless of the order in which the genres are taught. School and system summary reports will be furnished to systems. Assessment samples should demonstrate what the student has learned to apply, independently, about the writing process.
