This set includes eight suggestions for good writing in science. They can be used as a PowerPoint or printed out as classroom posters. These writing guidelines are great for teaching students how to construct good short answers. I have them on display all year long to encourage students to give me complete evidence-based writing in their interactive science notebooks. I can refer to them when I conference with individual students and help them to see ways to improve their writing in science. I notice that once they start using these in science, they write better all across the curriculum. These include: using vocabulary words, citing evidence, predicting, asking questions, using nouns to avoid faulty pronoun references, providing labeled drawings, looking for cause and effect, and making inferences.
