Writing Pathways has some gems in it, including how to use writing checklists while avoiding the "checklist mentality." Lucy Calkins suggests placing student skills on a learning progression and then showing students the next steps to help them move up the ladder. I liked that the checklists, rubrics, and learning progressions were all included. I also appreciated the benchmark pieces that can help to show kids in conferences what is looks like to move up the ladder.

I have a few red flags about
As I continue my summer reading to improve my writing instruction, I took on this book. My father taught me to tackle the biggest tasks first. This thick, double-columned book was the logical choice after the introductory book.

There is good in this book. In a perfect world, Calkins describes what reading would be. She is enthusiastic about her craft; she writes as though all students will write beautiful pieces willingly.

This assessment book, however, has left this teacher with many questions.

This book is the assessment part of the TCWP Units of Study for Writing that are based on CCSS. We've been using these units of study for a couple of years, but want to delve into the assessment process more deeply this year. Good suggestions on how to use on-demand assessments throughout the year to lift the level of student writing as well as teacher collaboration.

Borrowed this from the assistant principal to learn about the new writing assessment. Found a lot of positives, but also concerns. Some points transfered to my own practice with older students.
