Evaluating Children's Writing: A Handbook of Communication Choices for Classroom Teachers

Synopsis

This handbook offers step-by-step instructions for evaluating and communicating with elementary school students about their writing. It examines the objectives of evaluating writing -- why we grade and what it is we base grading on -- and offers a variety of evaluation strategies teachers can use in different instructional settings. The author stresses throughout that evaluation is a form of communication between teacher and student and that grading strategies are instructional tools that teachers can select and adapt according to specific instructional purposes.
