This is a peer editing worksheet to use with the ACT Aspire Rubric for 5th and 8th graders. I have a powerpoint that walks kids through the process that can be found here:
With this worksheet, kids are giving feedback to a peer by marking the writing with specials colors and signs when they see the student:
--Choosing 1 topic throughout the writing
--3 Big Umbrella Reason
--Any Counter Arguments
--Evidence or Examples to prove your big reasons
--Transitions, starter positions, conclusion positions
For example, the students have to put a smile above figurative language, or a star if the student put an indent, a 123 at the top of the writing if it's sequenced correctly.
