Tired of spending hours upon hours grading essays? Looking for a way to make essay grading less subjective and more objective? Use the 6-Trait Writing Critique Sheet!
I use this critique sheet for all of the essays my students turn into me. Because it focuses on the 6-Traits, it can be used for research papers, narratives, persuasive essays, or any other type of essay or paper that you might assign. By using the same sheet for every essay, students know exactly what to focus on and can see their improvement along the way. Instant feedback is given without the hassle and pain of handwriting each comment. In addition, counting up the points makes for an objective score (much like a rubric).
