Rubrics are not only a guide for grading; they provide a clear and attainable target for students at work. By simply paying close attention during the lesson and referring to the rubric, students can focus their practice as they write to earn the grade they choose.
These rubrics were developed with the CCSS in mind, and refined through use in my classroom.
I hope you will find these rubrics useful in your classroom!
Rubrics in this product: Personal Narrative, Informative Essay, Opinion Essay, and Literary Essay.
