Differentiation by Design
Every Child a Writer
is different. In ECAW classrooms, differentiation begins with an easy-to-use and easy-to-score assessment prompt. This writing sample is then scored using the ECAW Placement Rubrics. These rubrics assure accurate placement into one of the eleven ECAW stages.
Differentiation by Design provides the teacher with explicit guidance in determining each child's progress and readiness to move ahead to the next product or stage. This process is an essential component of ECAW Instruction.
