How to Grade Your Child's Writing
SKU: Grade Your Child's Writing
As a parent, it is challenging to grade your child’s papers, because judging writing is so subjective. In math or science, and history as well, there is a right answer—in fact, there is generally only one right answer. This is not the case with writing. There are no absolutes in grading because there are so many elements of writing. Do we count the spelling errors and ignore content? On the other hand, how can we ignore grammatical mistakes that mar our understanding of content? We wrestle with how to properly assess our children’s writing. Clearly, a diagnostic tool is needed to measure writing skills objectively. This book has rubrics and methods to help you grade objectively.
