Students perform better when all of the intricacies of writing are made explicit to them. With these comprehensive essay grading rubrics from JustStartApps, students will receive points for a range of pinpointed writing issues, from good spelling to the presence of specific details and well-articulated arguments. As a whole, the packet includes essay rubrics for personal essays, analytical essays, definition essays, research reports and literature analysis papers. Grading categories include Ideas and Content, Organization, Style and the Conventions.
What makes these rubrics different than the kind that come bundled with your school curriculum is the level of detail to which they go. These rubrics are what a professional writer and tutor looks for in any piece of writing, be it written by a fifth grader or a NY Times journalist. Whether you’re working with a student who is really struggling to understand all that you’re looking for in his or her writing or you’re working with a top grade student looking to take his or her work to the next level, these rubrics ensure that all of the essential fundamentals are covered in the first place and don’t fall by the wayside as time goes on. They take the mystery out of writing, so that both you and the student can focus on the fun stuff.
Note: Many of the criteria listed here are expanded upon in upcoming lesson plan worksheets, so keep your eyes peeled for more!
