A few years ago, I translated the Pennsylvania state writing rubrics into kid-friendly language and created these rubrics to make for easy grading. While, they are based on the PA rubrics, many teachers in many states have found these helpful. Each rubric has 5 categories: Focus, Content, Organization, Style, and Conventions. Students can earn up to 4 points in each category, for a total of 20 points.
