• Students revise essays based upon CCSS rubrics. Early in the year only specific traits are reworked, focusing on organization, elaboration, and conventions. Some students are born writers who find elaboration as natural as breathing. Those who need more framework or structure find it helpful to use chunk sheets until they learn to organize their writing.
