Need to give classwork or homework grades? What better way than to use a rubric! Rubrics provide thoughtful feedback for students and are easy to use for teachers. This rubric is particularly adept, as it emphasizes following directions and effort over correct answers (although, it does assess this, too). This is particularly good for students who are using classwork/homework to reinforce a new concept - they won't be as afraid to make a mistake! By emphasizing effort, it is also perfect for use in Special Education classrooms.
