So much emphasis is placed on the NYS ela exams that students should be given as much support as possible. This rubric breaks down the sample the state gives on the web and provides students with child friendly bullet points to help them do their best work. Have students tape it into their notebooks as a reference tool (rubric) as you do test preparation with them. After repeated use, students will be able to move towards independence in writing for the NYS Ela exams.
