In this listing, I am offering a 14-page Incredible Critique Forms and Rubrics with twelve individual and group writing assessment handouts along with two full pages of Teachers Notes. Middle school and high school students should use them to analyze and critique their own writing as well as their peers. Teachers can choose which ones best fit their students' skills, abilities and needs.
I have used these various forms successfully with regular, Honors /A.P. and SPED students in grades 7-12. The Self-Assessment Sheet: Writing and the Quarter Writing Progress Self-Assessment are great ways to help students take ownership for their writing and the process they choose to follow to complete their work.
If we want our students to become strong writers, we must teach them to talk like writers (verbally and in writing) as well as showing them how to write right.
If we want our students to develop confidence in themselves as writers, we must Show them the characteristics of strong writing and Help them to find these strengths in their own writing as well as in others' words-authors they have never met and their peers- and then Let them critique their writing and their peers' pieces.
For a product that coordinates well with this one, here is a packet that focuses on the parts of essay writing, so when it is time for students to write an expository piece they are prepared to create a focused and supported composition. Download it from
