Assess student writing and know that you are perfectly aligned to CCSS!
These rubrics cover the 3 types of writing - Narrative, Opinion, and Expository.
The rubrics are based on CCSS writing standards, along with language/grammar standards that are important for 5th grade.
Each section of the rubric denotes which standard it addresses, making it easy to ensure you have covered the necessary standards in teaching and assessing student writing.
Instead of specifying what each level looks like for each subsection (can we say hot mess?), there is a mastery 5 point scale that is used to assess each area. The scale is at the top of each rubric and clearly states what each level looks likes.
The scale is a great tool to use in other subject areas too and by consistently using the same scale all year in writing (and other subjects if you choose) students will know what mastery of a skill looks like and be clear on teacher expectations.
These rubrics work great for using all year long!
