Such a well-prepared lesson. I will be teaching the writing process. Believe me I will use some of you material. The power point is very clear. The language is very accessible to my ELLs.

I am a Science teacher with one class of Literature .. With the new Core I want my 8th grade students to have a better feeling on writing in all my classes. By promoting Peer editing..My students said" This is wonderful, now I understand what peer work really means!"

Thank you for these resources. I am beginning a unit of the revision of writing, and the resources gave me a great way to work with student partners, yet introduce "Peer Editing" to the whole class. It would be nice to have the 5-point and 4-point papers, but I can also make my own rubric.

Went looking for a resource to teach writing a "How to " paper for 4th graders! I found this...and wow...what a GREAT resource. My kids are going to love it! The interactive sites and worksheets especially useful. Thanks so much for your work. DT

Thank you for alerting us to those broken links, Glenna. We are currently reviewing the new sets of student work available at http://www.doe.mass.edu/mcas/student/2009/. Once we determine which sample will be most useful to teachers using this lesson, we will update the lesson accordingly.

Loved the lesson, but access to the 5 point and 4 point papers was available.
