Did your students include all the major pieces of good writing?
Based on the Common Core State Standards for each genre, these checklists break down the important elements needed for good writing. Students can use these checklists during pre write or revisions to self-check. Teachers could also use these to paste onto student writing to help provide feedback to students.
* Common Core Aligned!
This checklist is basic and meant more for the beginner writer. It does not address the depth at which the student meet each criteria, rather that they've addressed that element. For example, "Is there a topic sentence?", not how clear the topic sentence is.
