This is a quick and easy form to write down observations about student writing when you are conferencing with them. I keep them them all in a binder and pull it out during Writing Conferences.
I kept the form small so that I would not have bunches of paper in my binder. Keeping it small also helps me focus in on one or two key elements the student needs to work on. This also helps me keep my conferences short and direct so I can conference with more students per Writing Block.
