Science classrooms are implementing more inquiry and cross-curricular writing. The easiest way to implement both is via laboratory writing assignments. After conducting an experiment, students are required to write a report outlining the experiment and comparing it to previous work in the field. These write-ups can be done every so often to mix up the stale "cookie cutter lab" worksheets we're all familiar with.
This generic rubric outlines what should be in each designated section. Additionally, blanks are present in the works cited areas to allow teachers to designate the minimum number of sources for the write-up as well as the format (MLA, etc). A cross curriculur writing rubric is also attached.
