Product Description

Constructed and refined over five years in an ESL classroom in a non-English environment (Taiwan) with never fewer than 4 native language backgrounds per class, this writing rubric targets many common areas for improvement in G2 ESL writing.

  • Student friendly language with key words underlined to help students understand what they need to do!
  • Conveniently organized into 'Content Goals,' 'Participation' and 'Structural Goals' categories to save you work!
  • Easily modifiable and with extra room for adding your own categories, goals from standards and curriculum, etc.
  • Easily modified for other types of writing (e.g., creative writing)
  • Easily modified or used as a base for your non-ESL students' needs as well!
  • Good for any length and level of G2 creative story writing project.
  • Integrates some WIDA concepts, such as general, specific and technical language.

Pro tip - try the following:

  1. Preview the rubric with students at the start of a writing project.
  2. Remind students to look at the rubric regularly during writing time.
  3. Have students use their pencils and mark the rubric for self reflection and editing/improvement before handing in their work. Tell thiem, "This isn't for me, it's for you. It will help you make your story even better!" - it works wonders!
  4. (I've often also had students reference their rubrics if I want them to peer check as part of the revision process.)
