This product is intended to be used during individual writing conferences with students in order to track student progress. I use this product in conjunction with Deanna Jump and Deedee Will's Writer's Workshop: Writing Through the Year units found here: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Writers-Workshop-Writing-Through-the-Year-Bundle-Complete-Set-1-8-CC-Aligned-727254. Writing behavior descriptions can be found on the writing continuum found in Unit 2. However, this product can also be used on its own. Enjoy!
