This includes a 5-point & a 6-point scoring guide for grading your students' Writer's Notebooks. Each scoring guide includes a large copy to display in your classroom and small copies (4 per sheet) to have students glue into their notebooks. This helps hold students accountable for their work and from the specific descriptors they should already be able to tell what their grade will be before they even turn it in at the end of the week.
I use these mainly when we set up a Writer's Notebook that students use for "seed" writing. Students are required to have a certain amount of free writing done each week during Writer's Workshop. At the end of the week part of their grade is based on the amount of writing they did in their notebook. These grades are based on quantity to build up their writing stamina more than quality.
These can also be easily modified for those reluctant writers. For some students I could set specific goals or change the number of pages/amount of writing they had to do each week.
If you purchase this and are interested in making changes to the requirements just send me a message with your email and I will gladly send you the editable document.
