These writing posters are a great display in the classroom. On the STAAR assessment (both narrative and expository), there are three dimensions of quality that are used in evaluation:
1. Organization & Progression of the Essay
2. Development of Ideas
3. Use of Language and Writing Conventions
The student friendly rubric and posters I designed are a visual for the students on what a 1 star essay looks like and what a 4 star essay includes. Students should become familiar with the expectations for high-quality writing in each genre. The Rubric and Posters are a great way to introduce the criteria for each kind of writing to them.
4 Narrative Essay Posters
