This could be used with both advanced and regular students. The rubric is very easy to use. Each requirement is worth 5 (excellent), 3 (average), or 1 (needs improvement) point. It makes grading essays a lot faster! It has an introduction, two body paragraphs, and a conclusion. For example, blending a quote is something that must be done correctly in each body paragraph.
It could also be easily adapted to another text. All you would have to do is change the word Caesar and you would be good to go!
