EASY TO USE!
As teachers, we know what kind of grade a piece of writing should receive. However, too often we end up trying to make the rubric 'fit' to the grade we want to give. Not the case for this rubric! It easily fits to the standards of the common core for persuasive writing AND easily fits to the traditional 90, 80, 70, etc. grading scale. This particular rubric is for 8th grade, but the file should allow modifications for any middle school grade level.
