    Editable Writing Checklist and Editing Sheet


    This writing bundle contains everything I use for writing throughout the year with my freshmen and sophomores. The preview contains a detailed map for using all of these products, which I have created to address different learners and needs. The material in this writing is available in digital and print formats

    While creating these writing activities, I kept the overarching idea in mind that students can and should take responsibility in for their learning and writing. Many points throughout these activities, I ask students to reflect and take ownership of the writing process, something important for older students.

    Most of the contents of this bundle are in my store separately (listed below), but this bundle contains the outline for using the materials, editable checklists, and all the materials at a discounted price.


    Writing Expectations Powerpoint (Google Slides):

    * Completely editable writing presentation. Covers:

    Expectations for revising and editing papers and applying teacher comments.

    Specific paper problems such as wordiness, incomplete thoughts, cliches, etc.

    Definitions, examples, and expectations for brainstorming, introductions, topic
    sentences, thesis statements, conclusions, focus, organization, voice, conventions,
    transitions, style, and more.

    * Student note-taking sheets.

    High School Writing Prompts

    Need help with ideas for larger papers? These writing topics are divided into categories: narrative, informative, argumentative.

    Improve Student Writing: Overused Words, Sentence Structure, and More

    As students continue with writing, show them small but meaningful ways to improve their writing.

    Organize Student Writing: Outlining or Graphic Organizers

    Get students on the path to success with these activities that cover basics. You choose the approach that works best for your classes.

    MLA Research Rubrics (editable) and Writing Cards

    These rubrics are editable because everyone has slightly different wording.

    Improve Student Writing: Eliminate Linking Verbs

    Students may struggle with thinking of strong verbs. For students who repeat is, am, are, was, were... this activity is for them.

    Editing and Revising Activities Bundle for Secondary Students

    Differentiate with this! I typically use stations for students, but partner and individual practice will work too.

    Improve Student Writing: Stop Writing Cliches!

    Provide students with a method for improving their descriptions while eliminating common cliches.

    Argumentative Presentation

    Set the foundation and your expectations with this editable Powerpoint for argumentative writing.

    Graphic Organizers

    Eleven graphic organizers will allow you to scaffold and provide student choice throughout the writing process.

    Bell Ringers with Pictures

    To help students write for various purposes, I created a presentation with 33 writing prompts (enough for one month). The prompts are either narrative, expository, or argumentative.

    I use all of these activities with my high school students throughout the school year. Because there are so many, you will be able to differentiate and personalize. I do not have a complete map of day by day activities, but I do include the overall process in the preview.

    You can view the specifics of this writing bundle in the above links, but this bundle does contain extras:

    * An editable checklist and activities starter for teachers.

    This writing bundle specifically works with freshmen and sophomores, but with a few adjustments, the materials will work for a bit younger or older students. I have left the majority of the material editable, and you will have a license to use this digitally.
