Whether your students are just beginning to write or crafting whole sentences, useful, encouraging feedback is essential to their growth. In this guide, Ruth Culham provides over 180 just-right trait-specific comments, plus a K-2 scoring guide for each trait, to help you assess writing. Since primary learners benefit more from oral than written communication, the guide is ideal for use in one-on-one conferences, small groups, and even whole-class instruction. All of Culham's comments are correlated to the scoring guides and based on the five-levels of achievement. Spiral-bound, tabbed for easy access, and printed on sturdy coated paper, this guide is meant for years of use. For use with Grades K-2.
