This chart tracks students' progression through the writing process. Put each of the 5 steps (prewrite, rough draft, revise, edit, publish) on a piece of construction paper and laminate as one large item. Write each student's name on a clothes pin. They will move this clip along the chart as they progress through the writing process. This will help teachers keep track of who is where in the process to make it easier to meet one on one or ensure students are on track. Each step gives basic directions for what needs to happen on each step.
