This helpful book contains four, five, and six-point rubrics/scoring sheets as well as numerical and practice-paper scoring sheets; checklists for students to help them remember to include the required elements of the various genres of writing; Paper Clippers to attach to students' graded writings showing them which elements they remembered/forgot to include; and forms to help students with the prewriting processes. The Writing Modes Quick Reference will be particularly helpful to beginning writers: It explains where the various genres of writing are used (IE: descriptive writing is used in travel brochures, menus, etc.). Publishing checklists, grader/rater checklists, form containing activities to encourage writing at home, and forms to communicate with parents have also been included in the mix. Of the 40 forms, I think the prewriting form for persuasive writing may prove to be the most useful along with the Paper Clippers and the Cut-Apart Scoring Sheets. The latter will be helpful when students team up with their peer proofreaders to assess each other's drafts. Although not a must-have, for the truly busy teacher, this book is a time saver.
