A list of writing "non-negotiables" or things that students MUST do correctly in their writing at all time! I give this list at the beginning of the year and I hold students to it on every assignment they submit to me. Ideally this is a fluid piece that changes with the group. Somethings I always keep, but you'll notice the blanks to write. That is because each group of kids will have different things that they need to work on based on their needs. I usually compile a list after grading a few assignments. Enjoy!
Once you download this, you should tailor it to your needs. What things do your students need to work on this year? Those are the things you could add! :)
