This is an excellent tool for students when it comes to their writing!
It is a perfect checklist for students to make sure they have everything in their writing as well as an excellent self-assessment tool for students! Students have to write their writing out of five stars and state why. In the few days since introducing this writing checklist, students writing has improved.
When I use it in my classroom, I have printed off the checklist on bright colored paper, cut each one out and attach it to whatever students may be writing for that lesson.
