This collaborative, hands-on, ELA and STEM-aligned activity fosters team-building, critical thinking, collaborative problem-solving, communication, and social skills. Engaging, fun, proactive learning for back-to-school, half-days, special days . . . or any day! Writing assignments, grading rubrics, and CCSS included!
Writing assignments can be overwhelming for students with certain learning and attention issues. Your child may have an overall plan for how to manage big projects. But when he sits down to start a writing assignment, he may not know how to break it down into smaller tasks. The key is to identify specific chunks that will make the work manageable for your child.
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 rubric bundle for secondary ELA contains five different rubrics for different middle school and high school writing assignments.
Working on a variety of writing forms for a final project in English. :pencil2: I display 2-3 new forms each week, so that students can grab and go, as they complete the various writing assignments. Seven down, eleven to go! #secondaryenglish #teachersfollowteachers #theclassroomsparrow
