Product Description
This rubric assesses an argumentative letter formatted in the block style format. Writing a letter is a surefire way to give students an authentic audience, and therefore greater investment in their writing. Really, it's just a riff on a five-paragraph essay. (In my 8th grade classroom, we write an argumentative letter to our state representative.)

This rubric assesses the following areas:
-Introduction - statement of purpose, effectiveness of claim and thesis
-3 body paragraphs for each supporting claim - effective claim, warrant, evidence, counterclaim, and rebuttal
-Conclusion - restatement of argumentative claim and appropriate closing
-Formatting in block style
-Conventions
