In my district, rubrics are a must in every classroom. However, I realized that asking my students to rate themselves on a 1-4 scale on a standard they barely understood was not very helpful to them OR me. So I broke down each standard into the various learning goals that are easier to understand for my students.
Florida State Reading Informational standards, rubrics worksheet with standards-based learning goals, and vocabulary sheet to help teachers direct their students understanding of what they need to learn and assess their progress throughout the unit.
Rubrics Included for the following 4th Grade Informational Standards:
RI.1.2 Main Idea and Summary
