Use this rubric to help grade informational/non-fiction writing. This rubric is aligned with the TC writing curriculum. Each category has a total of 4 points. Elabaoration and Craft are 2 times the amount of points (For example, if a student gets a level 3 in the Elaboration category, it would be a total of 6 points instead of 3). Add the total points to determine the students final score. This resource fits on one page so its easy to attach to student work and/or display on a bulletin board. Students should be aware of this rubric and be provided with the student friendly version (available with the TC curriculum).
