Help your students take an active role in understanding the basic concepts of writing. Studies have shown that when students understand what the expectations are they produce better work and are more likely to stay on task. They also can internalize their learning more when they have immediate formative feedback.
Using these rubrics is just one way to implement some of these ideas in your classroom. Your students will understand the basic concepts of a sentence and a paragraph and be able to give either themselves or their peers formative feedback to see if they got it!
