For information report writing, I used a writing ladder which worked wonderfully!
For narrative writing, I have updated my writing ladder and it looks like this:
This time, I've made it look like a ladder and the students have to "climb" up the ladder as they progress through writing their narrative.
Each students' name is placed on a little laminated card that they move up the ladder as they finish that part of their narrative writing.
Our ladder steps from the beginning to the end are:
Plan, Develop the Characters, Set the Scene, Orientation, Complication, Resolution, Self Editing and Revising, Publishing, Group Editing
