These are a set of three writing rubrics created using the Iowa Core (Common Core)Curriculum. It also ties to 6-Traits of writing. There are four categories, Excelling, Achieving, Developing, and Beginning that one can use to assess student's development as a writer. Each "box" can also be used as a writing mini-lesson. These rubrics can be the scope and sequence for an entire year, supplementing with good examples. Rubrics are included for Narrative Writing, Argumentative Writing, and Informative/Explanatory Writing.
