This product provides a focused detailed list of instructions that takes the "guessing" game out of what will be scored in the first phase of the writing process. It is designed to have an energetic appearance that will excite students and stir their interest in beginning a writing assignment.
This product has proven useful to my students in helping them begin a writing assignment. It can be easily adapted for any subject or assignment that requires a written response. This checklist/rubric is very helpful when students say "I don't know how to get started!" This will help them "get started."
