Evaluate Writing: The Easy Way!

The sweetness of lips increases learning...

From: Janice Campbell

Do you worry about evaluating your student’s writing?

Do you sometimes feel as if you’re missing something in the evaluation process?

Evaluate Writing the Easy Way by Janice Campbell
Evaluating writing is so much more than just “correcting papers.” It can affect your student’s feelings about writing, his or her chance of academic success, and even the relationship you share.

In this simple, approachable little book (just 32 pages!), you’ll learn the things you need to know in order to become a better writing evaluator.

You’ll discover:
· The definition, purpose, and goals of writing evaluation
· How to recognize the characteristics of good writing
· How to measure results by an objective standard
· The seven skill areas you need to assess in each writing assignment
· How to provide constructive feedback in a consistent, organized way
· How to evaluate tactfully and with grace
· How to evaluate in a way that preserves and strengthens your relationship with your student

You'll find that using the reproducible rubric will help you evaluate fairly and consistently in a way that helps your student grow as a writer. Evaluating writing doesn't have to be hard!

If you have felt that you’re just not equipped for the job of evaluating writing, this book will provide the information, tools, and resources you need.

Writing evaluation is a valuable skill, and you can learn to do it!
