YOUR STUDENTS CAN DO MORE WITH THOSE ON-DEMAND WRITING ASSESSMENTS THAN YOU THINK.
I want to give you a few strategies today that you can implement immediately to support your students in setting good, realistic and attainable writing goals for themselves.
Don't you just love those on-demand writing assessments.
If you use Lucy Calkins' Units of Study for Teaching Writing then this resource is for you. Here is a FREE tool for you to use to help your students set new goals and measure their own learning. This PDF will allow your students to set goals in structure, development, and language conventions. Your students can choose 1 success and 1 area of growth in structure, development, and language conventions while looking at their own on-demand piece and graded rubric. Or, you can just have your students share a success out loud and only write down their growth goal. If you choose, you can make a copy of this sheet and send it home to your families so they know and understand what their child’s goals are and how they can support them at home. At the bottom of each page is a box where you can share specific strategies that families can use at home to support their child in their goal.
HELP YOUR STUDENTS SET NEW GOALS & MEASURE THEIR OWN LEARNING WITH THEIR WRITING ON-DEMAND ASSESSMENTS!
