Ask students to turn in a copy of this sheet with each writing assignment. This sheet can be stapled or paper-clipped to the work.
Consider copying this sheet onto duplicate or triplicate paper to retain and share copies with stakeholders.
One sheet has editing points to check already written in the boxes. The other sheet allows for you, an associate, or a colleague (special education teacher, reading strategist, EAAL teacher) to determine what points a student needs to check for in his/her writings.
Use these sheets to track over time a student’s growth in consistently hitting specific editing targets. These sheets may also work for tracking IEP goals, collecting data for special education placement, or using for RTI/MTSS.
Cross off or eliminate any editing targets in which a student has already demonstrated proficiency or any editing targets that are not applicable to a particular assignment.
