Looking for a way to marry concepts from history/social studies class with creative writing?
This is a very detailed rubric to use when writing and/or scoring a historical fiction short story. The quality of student work is sure to increase if you are willing to teach and provide this sort of rubric before the assignment is due.
It is a four-point scale for six criteria (twenty-four possible points). One point is given to those who submit their work on time. Multiply all points by four, to get the number grade.
This also includes a peer revision version of the rubric that students may use to assess and comment on drafts.
