Process Writing Checklist.
Jenks, Christopher J.
This checklist is designed to help develop writing strategies for English language learners (ELLs), focusing on a variety of linguistic strategies inherent in the writing process. It provides them with a graphical representation of the cognitive process involved in complex writing, promoting self-assessment strategies and integrating oral activities, graphic organizers, literacy tasks, writing workshops, and publishing goals into a self-assessment tool. The writing process is categorized in a five-stage sequential pattern (prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing). The process writing checklist acknowledges the importance of activating background knowledge through exploratory activities native to the prewriting state. The drafting, revising, and editing phases of process writing integrate the procedural and structural knowledge critical to successful writing. The composition tasks associated with the publishing stage unite the content, procedural, and structural knowledge central to developing authentic and effective writing assessment activities. Self-assessment methodologies empower ELLs with the confidence and skills necessary for literacy development. (SM)
