This document contains learning scales or rubrics aligned to the ELA Common Core Literature and Informational Text Standards. Each learning scale or rubric is written in the kid-friendly "I Can" format.
The learning scale format was adapted from The Art and Science of Teaching by Robert J. Marzano. We, as the authors of these learning scales, have chosen not to include “0” on our scales.
Students rate their level understanding at the beginning of lesson using the “Novice” (1) through “Expert” (4) scale. As the students progress through the lesson, the teacher can continually monitor the students’ understanding of the concept. The goal is for the students to reach the “Practitioner” or “Expert” levels at the end of instruction.
If you would like revisions made to the learning scales, please contact us through the “Ask a Question” tab at Engaging Young Minds @ TpT.
