Teaching Writing Easily and Effectively to Get Results. Part II: The Evaluation Process.
Carlson, Diana M.; Roellich, Carol
With use of a carefully planned program of peer evaluation, the teacher can develop students' skills in analysis, evaluation, proofreading, and punctuation. Giving each student a copy of the "Indicator for Rating Performance, Grades 6-12," the teacher explains that the 11 essential parts of any written work are each described and given a specific point value in the evaluation instrument. The teacher then supervises class use of the indicator to grade anonymous samples of student work. After students have demonstrated skill in using the instrument and have had a grammar review, the teacher describes the evaluation process: student assignments will be exchanged and evaluated by classmates using the indicator and score sheet; both assignments and evaluations will be graded. Using this procedure, a teacher can increase the quality of student writing; improve students' grammar, spelling, and punctuation skills; and decrease his or her own correcting time. (The performance indicator, writer's evaluation score sheet, grader's evaluation form, and both a punctuation and an English review are appended.) (MM)
