This product includes three separate Common Core Standards aligned rubrics for argument, explanatory/informational, and narrative writing. The rubrics follow the 6-traits of writing format (organization, ideas, voice, language, fluency, and mechanics), but also fit a standards-based grading model.
I teach 7th grade ELA and I realized how my writing rubrics did not exactly fit the Standards-Based grading model, but I wasn't ready to give up on the 6 traits of writing model for instruction. So I created these rubrics for my own instruction and assessment and I absolutely love using them.
**The language used in this rubric is taken directly from the Common Core State Standards. I do not take credit for the language and content of the standards, but rather the structure and format involved with combining the standards with the six traits of writing.
