This is a writing checklist and rubric for the ACT Aspire 5th Grade Persuasive Writing. This would be a great document to use to teach what is expected. The ACT Aspire Rubric from the ACT Aspire website is not student friendly. So I took the information from that rubric to create this checklist and rubric. We have taken the ACT Aspire for 3 years so this has been a working document for me. I have refined the checklist and rubric to how the writings are scored each year.
First, there is some information on the 4 sections of how each writing will be graded:
1. Persuasive Ideas and Analysis
2. Development and Support
4. Language Use
I have taken the rubric for each section and broken it down into easier pieces for students.
Be sure to look for my 5th Grade Persuasive Writing Powerpoint for more information on how the ACT is scored.
This would also be great for 8th-grade students that take the ACT Aspire Writing Test.
