Kentucky Marker Papers: Phase II
The Kentucky Department of Education has completed an update of Marker Papers development. The Kentucky Marker Papers are instructional samples intended to show competency in writing across the grade levels, subject areas, and categories of writing.

 

The 2008 Marker Papers update is now online. Below, you will find sets of Marker Papers for different grade levels. The document will soon be available as a complete set. Teachers wishing to use the Kentucky Marker Papers should understand their use as instructional resources. The PowerPoint training module presents and overview of the purpose and appropriate use of the papers. Likewise, teachers may look under “Recorded Sessions” at this site to find a WebEx overview of the Marker Papers.

The marker papers are examples of competent student writing at each grade level. The papers illustrate the progression of key writing skills in specific types of writing. Each piece is annotated to show the skills that the writer has demonstrated in that piece of writing. Unannotated papers are also available for instructional purposes.

The marker papers represent end-of-the-year writing, the result of a year of effective instruction. For example, a year of effective instruction should move a ninth grade competent writer to competency by the end of the tenth grade year. Continuous progress and instruction are essential for these markers to be met.
