The Writing Process
Rubric for PA writing assessment domain scoring guide
: Focus, content, organization, style, and
conventions (punctuation, commas, spelling, quotation marks, etc.)
The writing process
: Prewriting (look for ideas), drafting (getting your ideas down quickly), revising/
peer conferencing (making content changes, sharing), editing/ teacher conferencing (mini lesson, making
corrections in grammar, capitalization, punctuation, and spelling), final product (publishing center,
bulletin board, class book), evaluation (assessment guides).
How to implement the writing process
- make a list, make a web, brainstorm, and draw, read a story, interview someone. GET YOUR
IDEAS ON PAPER!
- first writing, get more ideas on the paper, write on one side of the paper, skip lines to make
corrections, don’t worry about making corrections.
- cross out, cut and paste, add information, re-sequence, write a new beginning or end, change
point of view.
