The file is a 25 point Science journal scoring rubric. I developed this year so i can assess just the science component of my journals. My students do not get to write short items in their ELA classes, only essays it seems, so in collaboration with the ELA block teachers on my TEAM, we have devised a way to make my journals cross curricular allowing them to assess the ELA component. I do not think it is fair to the students to judge ELA since my main goal is content, so the ELA teachers have taken it upon themselves to do that part.
I want the kids to know exactly what I am going to score on, so they get this to keep in their centralized binder system for reference.
Be sure you print this landscaped and not portrait.
