These writing targets are specifically aligned with Australian Curriculum English Years F-6 , which allows teachers to easily provide feedback and future learning targets to students; however, they could be easily used in any educational setting. These also strongly support Visible Learning approaches to teaching and learning, in particular success criteria (WILF).
These writing targets also help unpack the Australian Curriculum for teachers.
Print, fold and laminate (two to a page). Select the level appropriate to each student in the class (allows for differentiation) and use it like a bookmark in students' writing book.
Set goals or learning targets, with students, based on these text level writing targets. Indicate on the star (e.g. sticker) each time you see a target being independently demonstrated.
