19 The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim Because it was grassy and wanted wear, Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same, Content contained is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License

20 The Road Not Taken And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I marked the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.

28 Students read one or two brief texts and answer a few questions to help clarify their understanding of the text(s). Students then write either a narrative story or a narrative description (e.g., writing a historical account of important figures; detailing a scientific process; describing an account of events, scenes, or objects). Understanding the Narrative Writing Task 28

29 Range: Example of assessing literature and helping to satisfy the 55%-45% split of informational text to literature at the 6-8 grade-band. Quality: Julie of the Wolves was a winner of the Newbery Medal in This text about a young Eskimo girl surviving on her own in the tundra by communicating with wolves offers a story rich with characterization and imagery that will appeal to a diverse student population. Complexity: Quantitatively and qualitatively, the passages have been validated and deemed suitable for use at grade 6. Texts Worth Reading? 29

30 In the passage, the author developed a strong character named Miyax. Think about Miyax and the details the author used to create that character. The passage ends with Miyax waiting for the black wolf to look at her. Write an original story to continue where the passage ended. In your story, be sure to use what you have learned about the character Miyax as you tell what happens to her next. Grade 6 Prose Constructed- Response Item 30
