    By far one of the biggest “difference makers” for me as a “teacher of writers” has been my use of demand prompts to guide instruction. In our class, we have a balance of free writing, process writing, and demand writing—but for me, the most effective way to ASSESS students is to do a regular demand prompt to see how students are doing on the targets we have worked on all year.

    Process writing is critical in the classroom, but as students work together, confer, share, revise, and so on—it becomes difficult to know what they can do independently. The resource that follows is a version of what I have done the last 4 years and have found to be the most efficient, effective, and stress-free way to measure student growth and to see what areas I need to provide additional instruction—to individual students, small focus groups, or the entire class.

    I have been asked by my primary friends to tailor this product originally made for intermediate students--and here it is! My primary friends have given it the "thumbs up" and it's ready to roll. This is also perfect for special education students in upper grades--there is more room to write and the assessment checklist may be more appropriate for their needs.

    The method is simple: Each prompt is graded using the exact same checklist at the top. If you use prompts from multiple sets (descriptive, opinion, narrative), you will see that the top portion of the checklist remains the same, allowing you to measure student growth ALL year. The bottom few lines of the checklist are more specific to the genre of writing.

    Each set contains 8 different reproducible prompts complete with checklist, class recording sheet, individual student recording sheet, and directions and suggestions for use. I have also included two different types of paper formatting--with dotted mid-lines and without. I hope you find these as useful as I do!

    This bundled set has 24 grade-appropriate OPINION ,NARRATIVE, and DESCRIPTIVE writing prompts which are available separately or in this bundle at a reduced price. Download the preview to get a feel for this resource--I don't think you will be disappointed!
