Writing Resources

The DLM Alternate Assessment will assess writing for all students at all grade levels.  There are numerous professional development modules focused on writing instruction.  One of the modules focuses on Alternate Pencils that are required for students who cannot use a standard pencil, pen, keyboard, or computer-based technology for writing. Below are files required to create two of the most widely used alternate pencils.  They are intended to get you started, but you may have to develop other alternatives for your students.
