What are these? 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.
Each of my “seasonal” sets contains 6 different prompts—to be copied back to back with the prompt/checklist on one side and the full writing sheet on the back. I have included a variety of genres including opinion writing, personal narratives, and descriptive writing. Pick and choose what works best with your class!
Two different data recording sheets are included as well.
Common Core Aligned and geared for grades 3-6.
