This rubric serves as a tool to teach elementary school children how to effectively evaluate their classmates' essays and how to use their peers' specific feedback to revise their own work. In my classroom, I began by using this rubric to model how to grade one to two student essays. After the students understood what to look for in each item on the rubric, my students worked in pairs to grade one another's essays. This rubric includes a section for content, as well as for grammar. If you find this rubric helpful, look for a birthday rubric for you as the teacher to use while grading.
