This is the rubric I use to score the students' Reader's Theater performances each week. They are worth a total of 100 points. 70 points for their performance and 30 for watching the others and reflecting upon what happened. The students are given their own copy so that they know EXACTLY how I grade their performance and what I want. There are no surprises. My name is Melanie Whitesides and I've used my rubric for a year and a half. It is important to let them know what is expected. If you want to see how each of the two pages look. see the preview. I've listed the first rubric column and the reflective writing assignment. This is a great way to tie in writing with reading and give students a chance to make themselves better.
