This rubric can be used to assess students' performance on their writing of haiku poetry. The same rubric is printed on the top and bottom of this document - so the teacher can make copies, cut them in half, and then score the poems.
The rubric assesses the following:
1. Nature theme
2. Line 1 (5 syllables)
3. Line 2 (7 syllables)
4. Line 3 (5 syllables
Each area has a point value to help the teacher provide an appropriate score for the poems.
