As you review the rubric, notice how she: Annotates the writing by addressing each of the six traits to describe what she sees the students doing or attempting in the writing.
Most of your sentences are the same length. They get better experimenting with the skill during writing time. How do I use the Six Traits to offer feedback? Other forms of writing assessment use checklists or rating scales. The same "raindrop" writing skills taught within mini-lessons are referenced within these trait-based conferences.
My sentences begin in different ways. This will again require Thinking Aloud during the lesson. Mastering sentence fluency requires two skills—attention to sentences and fluency. The lesson example below works best for K—2, but provides teachers in higher grades with a good example of how to connect the assessment tool and the Common Core writing standards for the lesson.
As with any good assessment, the purpose should drive the procedure.
