Description

This demand writing assessment resource arose from a need I had to more frequently measure students’ progress on a few key writing skills that our district writing rubric doesn't spell out clearly. I found that these skills were going largely ungraded—and I wasn't seeing my students make enough progress.

NOW AVAILABLE WITH DIGITAL SLIDE ACCESS!

Grading Writing Takes Time!

I knew I didn't want to add MORE to my plate—but I knew I needed something. I decided to try a short (8 minutes!) writing prompt a few times a week. By making it short, I didn't take away from instructional time, I am able to quickly score it and give feedback, and I can use it to pull strategy groups while I teach our district curriculum.

I wanted the rubric right on the page as a reminder for students…much like my other writing prompt resources. The difference? This is meant to be a quick snapshot—almost like an entrance slip before a writing class. I figure I can give up 8 minutes a few times a week if it will help me to help my students, right?

I figure by giving students a starting topic, we wouldn't waste time thinking of topics either—and each topic is so general that students can take it in many different directions—even different genres! This “high interest” set should have topics that appeal to almost all students!

Thus the “Great 8” was born! Just 8 minutes to do…and seriously about a half hour to score…It's worth it!
