I created this rubric to use when grading my students' constructed responses. After reading a text, the students are given a writing prompt and must answer within a written essay using evidence from the text to support their claim.
I used the 2014 NYS Grades 6-8 Writing Evaluation Rubric as a baseline.
I created this with my current sixth grade students in mind. This is for my evaluation proccess only; the students use an even more user-friendly document for their peer-editing process, which I hope to make available in my shop soon.
