Designed for use by elementary school teachers responsible for working with students whose writing test scores indicate a need for remediation, this guide has as its goal the improvement of students' writing skills on a day-to-day basis. The first part of the guide describes the composing process and defines the characteristics of an effective writing program, specifying factors, examples, and criteria for identification of those characteristics. The next part of the guide outlines the expectations for students writing in kindergarten through grade 3 and in grades 4 through 6. The remaining parts discuss (1) organizing the classroom for writing, (2) analyzing student writing as process and as product, and (3) using the student writing product analysis sheet. A description and a sample of the analysis sheet are provided as well as analyses of sample student responses. Two unanalyzed samples of student responses are also included for training purposes.
