PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I have been looking for a quick and easy way to grade student writing this year, given the fact that we no longer have an explicit writing block built in to our schedule.

I wanted a rubric that would mirror NYS's 4-point expository writing rubric used to score extended responses on the NYS ELA test. I wanted students to be familiar with this rubric so that they would be well prepared for their state test.

However, I was having a little trouble finding a child friendly version of this rubric. One that I could use on the fly because, lets face it, there just isn't enough time in the beginning of the school year. So, I came up with this.

I used the same categories, I just simplified them and organized my rubric as a check list.

In the beginning of the year I plan on checking off each box for student strengths, leaving them blank if that specific area was a challenge, and then counting the checks to get a quick score out of 4-points.

As we progress through the year, and dig deeper into the greater meaning of each rubric category, I plan on giving students a score from 1-4 for each category. That will provide me with a total of up to 16 points which I will then divide by 4 to get my usual score out of 4 points.

Enjoy!
