A Common Language and Criteria to Boost Students' Writing
Swain, Sherry Seale; Friedrich, Linda
Educational Leadership, v75 n7 p66-71 Apr 2018
The authors describe the Analytic Writing Continuum, a scoring system developed by writing assessment experts and the National Writing Project that provides a powerful way for teachers to assess students' writing and see good next steps for writing instruction. They give examples of educators using the AWC both to help students self-evaluate their writing and to help writing teachers further their professional learning.
