When I try to print out the argument/claims essay rubric for 7th and 8th grade, the rubric is printed out in two pages instead of one. I was just wondering if there is a problem with the document or a printer error.

Do you have a bundle for grade level writing rubrics? I see you have 6-8 rubrics by genre but if I only need 8th grade, could I buy all three (argument, informational, and narrative) in a bundle?

Also, I can't see what the format of the document is (pdf, word etc...) This would be a great document if I could get it as a word document.

Thanks!

Buyer re: Argument / Claims Writing Rubrics - Common Core Standards
I purchased the 6-8 bundle. I was wonderingif you could change Introduction to organization ( I think it fits better as counterclaim can be addresssed throughout). I can't edit, and thoughtI'd ask you!

Sure no problem. It does make sense! I can make that quick change and add it to the bundle you purchased. I will try to update the file with that change tonight, so all you would have to do is download it again. Thanks very much!

Hi! I recently purchased your grammar map project - verbs but I don't understand the instructions given. I teach ESL students and in order for them to understand the project the instructions have to be in detail- step by step. Thus I would like to receive detailed instructions if possible. Thank you, Diana

Hello!

I do a lot of mind mapping with my students, and the first step would be to show them examples of thinking/mind maps and discuss what it shows us about what the map maker knows/thinks. I searched and found examples online. Then you can get into the requirements of the map you want them to make (the project sheet). As your students get into the project, they will likely have questions about verb specifics, so I would have a few grammar resources on hand (like textbooks or worksheets) for students to review as they create their project. If your class is mostly beginner ELLs, you may want to consider having students work together and sort words you provide for them into categories, and then create a map.

Please email me damador@schools.nyc.gov as I would be happy to send you a pdf of the Smart Board slides I used that includes a few examples of Noun Mind Maps to discuss. Although I usually teach advanced & proficient ELLs, I find that once students see what I mean, they run with it, and make really great projects.

Hello,

I am interested in purchasing this rubric, but first would like to know the names of the categories on the left. I tried to read them in the preview, but all writing is unreadable. Thank you.

Hello,
The categories are:
- Introduction
- Main Idea & Details
- Research & Knowledge
- Conclusion
- Craft & Style
- Process

Thanks for giving me the heads up, as I can't see the preview either! I'm going to try and fix that...

Mrs Burditt  (TpT Seller) re: Literary Essay Prompts - Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
Hi,

I am considering teaching Uglies in my 7th grade English classroom next year. What grade level have you used these materials in? Do you have any feedback on how students responded to the book?

Thanks,

Hello!
I have used this text in both 7th & 8th grade and am glad you are considering this book; I love it! I teach urban students, former or current English Language Learners, so they don't really have much background knowledge in the SCI-FI genre, (which you will very likely need to teach). Nevertheless, I found that most of my students enjoy the book and a hand-full of kids always went on to read the rest of the series on their own. The themes in the book, (self-image, independence, betrayal, conservation, etc) interest most adolescents. I know the book really well and would use key chapters/excerpts to teach literary content, skills, or strategies. Although many students chose to independently read the parts that we didn't do in class, I would summarize them so that the all students know enough to be able to follow the story and complete the essays. Hope that helps and good luck!

I just purchased your literary essay prompts for the novel "Uglies." I really like these prompts and wil be using them in the upcoming school year. I will be teaching this novel to my freshman for the first time this fall and have been looking for good resources to help me prepare. If you have any plans to sell any other "Uglies" resources, please let me know. Thank you! - C.Toflinski

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Twelve years (and counting) in New York City public schools, specifically the Bronx.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Straightforward, workshop model, balanced literacy, and heavy on the visual.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I am modest. Really!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I don't want to be a name dropper. Plus, then I would also have to mention the school where I obtained my Master's Degree and I haven't quite gotten over how they insulted & annoyed me, so I would rather just not go there! :)
