Student Objectives:
*Students will be able to use everyday forms of writing to create a writing portfolio focused on punctuation and conventions. They will focus on the six traits of writing and will practice editing and giving feedback to one another. (CC.8.W.2: Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas, concepts, and information through the selection, organization, and analysis of relevant content. CC.8.W.4: Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience. CC.8.W.5: With some guidance and support from peers and adults, develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach, focusing on how well purpose and audience have been addressed.) They will especially focus on punctuation rules and usage. (CC.8.L.2: Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English capitalization, punctuation, and spelling when writing.)

Each student will create a portfolio by the end of the unit. The rubrics are focused on a few correction areas so that you are not overwhelmed with grading. You may also choose to only grade the students' best piece as well.
