How do you get students to be more detailed in his or her writing? Are you tired of grading and writing the same comments over and over? "Start with the question" "Add support" "Connect to yourself" "Indent paragraphs"
If only there were a secret formula to improve student responses. Now you have one! This strategy I created and used with middle school students worked to improve low level responses and improve student writing. This was created with students at a college prep school in a high poverty urban area. Improving writing was key to improve student success to be college and career ready. Giving students clear steps and strategies helped them learn to self assess and revise on their own.
