Drafting Checklist comes in FOUR different colours/designs!
Teach literacy and language-rich topics? Me too! Feel like the drafting never ends? Yeah, me too.
My main teaching area is English, which means I do copious amounts of drafting each year. I have designed this resource in hope of my students becoming more self-directed when it comes to checking their drafts before submitting them. My kids have a hard time understanding that I'm simply here to draft; not be their personal editor.
In this download you will receive:
- A drafting checklist for students in the middle to senior years
- A draft submission sheet/teacher feedback sheet
The DRAFTING CHECKLIST is designed to be stuck into students books as a year-long guide to refer to for all general tasks. It comes in four different colours/designs (something for everyone!) and covers the following areas with short explanations:
- Header Details
- Dialogue/Direct Speech
- Word Count
The DRAFT SUBMISSION AND FEEDBACK SHEET is one clearly formatted sheet, designed for students to hand up with their draft work. It requires students to:
- Ensure they have applied the drafting checklist stuck into their workbooks
- Sign and date the agreement (have used checklist, referenced work that isn't their own).
The sheet also allows students to nominate areas they would like the teacher focus on when providing feedback. Teachers are supplied with boxes to record feedback and feed-forward, allowing students to understand what has been done well, and what they can do to improve their work.
