How can teachers assess students writing in their classroom or in the school district accurately and consistently using standards? This two-part series will help educators assess their students’ writing as they also consider the samples in the Common Core. You will explore and examine student writing from grades K-12 using a Continuum that has embedded the 6 + 1 Trait Language.
