Chapter 6 - Assessment
This chapter spent some time providing samples of student work to use to discuss how to look at what they are already doing and where they need more guidance.
*Find time to really look at your students work outside of student conference time
*Look at what they can do in the domain of the craft of writing, not just mechanics
*Know what the student already does and pick one or two goals for them to work on
*Decide the best time to work on those goals (mini-lessons, interactive writing, conference, read aloud, conversation, morning meeting, word study)
*Like the recording sheets they use for both individual and whole group tracking
*Use a group to study each week as a snapshot of what lessons the students need
