This 4 pt scale rubric was created to go with the double entry journal organizer in my store. I photocopy the rubric on the back of the journal organizer so students can use it as a reference when completing their assignment. I also have students reflect on their work by highlighting their progress on the rubric. They then hand it in to me for assessment. Areas of assessment are based on Adrienne Gear's Reading Power strategies: Making connections, asking questions, making inferences supported with evidence from the text and recording detailed facts.
