I love to go over this the very first lesson of opinion writing. It helps students to understand exactly what is expected from them when writing in the FSA. I use this rubric to grade writing during the school year as well.
Rubric covers the main points from the FSA Opinion Writing Rubric. Very few words have been changed. Just a few were to help students understand.
I put the grading scale for a 3 and 4 on the front of the page and for 1 and 2 on the back of the page. You can either print 2 pages or one page front and back.
I like to tell my students to only look at the front when writing their opinion pieces (only look on the back for conventions of standard English).
