If you are teaching history and having your students write a history essay or writing history research paper then why are you using a rubric designed for a different subject? If you analyze common rubrics they are concerned with construction, sentence structure, main ideas, and grammar. Sure, these are important for a well-written paper but students need to know their history knowledge is valued in history class.

The History Writing Rubric does include one criteria for readability, grammar, and spelling but the other criteria support the history. Thesis statement, Thesis Support, and Historical Evidence are included in this rubric.

You also get an editable rubric that will open in PowerPoint so you can create your own rubric - hopefully focusing on history.

I also have added a rubric to support history short answers.

Editable formats will open in PowerPoint.


What's Included:

  • History Writing Rubric in a locked format with specialty fonts
  • History Writing Rubrics in both semi-editable and fully editable formats
  • Short answer rubric in a locked format with specialty fonts
  • Short answer rubric in both semi-editable and fully editable formats
