PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This resource is a way to get your students practicing the scoring of anchor papers or sample writing pieces. I have found that students become better writers when they can see others’ writing and give it both positive feedback, as well as to explain how they would improve the writing.

It is totally up to you how you use these papers, but I give my students one paper at a time, have them read the paper and make small notes/annotations in the side bar. The students then use the student-friendly rubric to give it an overall score. We then discuss the writing piece. You can then do this for all of the other writing pieces. There are a total of 4 writing samples included that students can score and make corrections with.

Also included is a writing prompt, which students can write. You may want to do this before students read the sample writing pieces, but I can definitely see students completing this after reading them, as well. What I tend to find is that if students read multiple examples before writing, they may lose their creativity and "copy" the samples.

Please note that I included a very simple student-friendly checklist/rubric. Of course, if you would like, you can use your district's rubric.

Happy Teaching!
