Reflection: Self-Graded Rubrics Biography: Editing an Informative Essay - Section 3: Assessment


At this point in the year, it is rewarding to see students catching most of their mistakes during the editing stage. At the beginning of the year, they considered their work finished after the first draft. It has taken a great deal of modeling and guiding students throughout the year. How fitting that the CCSS and research-based writing continuums concur that guidance and support are pivotal in the instruction of student writing.
