Do your students go back and edit their writing once they say they "are done?" I have found that giving students a self assessment for their writing provides accountability. Once I created this form for the students, their writing improved tremendously. I saw them take pride in their work. This assessment was created using the Common Core standards. Most importantly, I discovered that my students enjoyed writing more. I hope that this assessment helps you as much as it helped me! Happy Writing!
