UPDATED SRSD POSTERS (Download for Free)

I am a big fan of SRSD but it’s been years since I updated posters and you can tell! So I put a few modern touches to my posters and shared them below.

If you are wondering what in the world is SRSD, it is an amazing instructional approach designed to help students learn, use, and adopt the strategies used by skilled writers. It is an approach that adds the element of self-regulation to strategy instruction for writing. You can find out more by clicking here

Quick Write Rubric

quick writes for middle school


A Quick Write is a short response (2-10 minutes) to an open-ended question or prompt. This strategy is an excellent way for students to practice responding to an open-ended question connected to a text and using text evidence in their response.  

Strategy Steps:

  1. Students read a text.
  2. The teacher provides an open-ended question, such as “What is the most important thing you learned about Percy in Chapter 1? How did the author show this about Percy? Write in complete sentences and provide one specific example as evidence from the text.”
  3. Give students 2 to 10 minutes to write their response depending on the question.
  4. Lastly, use the rubric to score your students’ writing and provide actionable feedback. 
You can choose not to grade quick writes, or you can use a rubric to grade quick writes quickly. You can download the quick write rubric I use with my students below.

The quick write strategy is meant to be used as a spiral strategy. Meaning students will use this strategy throughout the year and will grow in their writing throughout the year.
