Are your students publishing their writing? Here is a checklist to give them before they hand in their writing! This will not only make them better writers but it also will make them more responsible for their writing.
I started each sentence with a capital letter.
I ended every sentence with correct punctuation (. ! ?)
My sentences make sense.
I used transitional words.
I added adjectives and details to make my story more “juicy”.
I had a peer read and review my writing.
