External Links _ It\'s good to have one external link per post. If you use multiple links it causes your site to pass along its authority to the links and will negatively affect your rankings. Embed a Video _ This is not always necessary but helps the reader absorb more information without having to read. Videos will also keep viewers on your site longer and will generate a better ranking for your website. Call To Action _ CTA _ What would you like the reader to do next? A call to action can be anything from \"Please leave a comment and let us know what you think\", \"Sign Up Here\", or \"Order your... here.\" Publish your Post _ When ready click on the publish button to see the published post on your website.
This checklist is clearly a great starting point for Year Three classes in their writing development. However, it is only a start. Below are a number of items that could be added to the checklist as students progress up the school ladder. These are not in any developmental or time order. Does your first paragraph introduce your story well? Does the last paragraph end the story appropriately? Does each paragraph contain only one point/episode of the story? Does the paragraph expand on that point/episode? Does each paragraph follow the correct sequence of the story? Is the tense of the verbs consistent with the story? Does the story flow from paragraph to paragraph? Have words with emotional emphasis been added to enhance the story? The experienced language teacher might add still more ideas to this \'checklist\'. He/she might develop a checklist that expands, year by year, to parallel the development of their students.
