This file includes a detailed 4-point rubric that assesses three Core Standards:
W.8.1. (Write and support an argument or claim)
W.8.5. (Develop and strengthen writing)
W.8.9. (Draw evidence from literary or informational texts)

It also includes a goal setting component, for teachers to set with students before writing instruction. There is a space for teacher comments, for you to do while you assess or score the piece, as well as two prompts for students to fill out and reflect on their performance. You also receive a correlated class reporting sheet.

This rubric can be used for persuasive essays or literary response defending a thesis. Check out my other rubrics for Common Core Writing Standards.
