If you have students who struggle with the editing process of writing or avoid the task altogether, the editing checklist provides an easy to read tool that lists step-by-step tasks and exactly what to look for in each task. Also included is a peer review checklist so that students know exactly what to look for when reviewing a writing assignment.
This packet includes the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade versions of a complete 6 Traits 4-point rubric that assesses eight Common Core Standards. The 6 traits categories are segmented according to each of the eight standards. An argument writing transition list, self and peer review checklist, 7 different mini checklists that align to each specific trait, and an outline format for a five paragraph argument essay is included.
This is a great peer-review strategy for any classroom! Students can swap writing pieces and complete a TAG form. They can create a TAG sticky note and do a gallery walk of writing pieces, TAGging each writing piece displayed with their feedback. FREE!! This is a perfect way to promote positive feedback and student reflection during writing workshop!
