This rubric was designed to assess your students' Informative/Explanatory writing based on the CCSS. This is a great tool to share with your kiddos so they know exactly what criteria they will be scored on. I have also used these rubrics for the students to self assess their writing. This rubric is concise and is helpful for parents to see what our writing expectations are.
Also, check out my Writing Rubrics bundle, which includes rubrics to assess all three types of writing (Persuasive/Opinion, Informative/Explanatory, and Narrative)!
Bundle is listed at a discounted price!
