This is a one-page document that I provide to my students at the beginning of our research paper overview. This is the exact MLA grading rubric that I use when I grade their final papers. It breaks down grammar, content, spelling, plagiarism, mechanics, etc., and it shows students how much each component is worth. This is one of FOUR items that I have that I use together when going over MLA research papers with my students. They are all meant to be used together.
