Each poster in this set provides a mini-rubric that can be used both by teachers and students to assess progress toward an eighth-grade ELA learning target. The targets are an adaptation of the Common Core State Standards that I created by rewording the standards in student-friendly language where appropriate and breaking the standards into multiple parts when they contained more skills than I could address in a single lesson.
On the scale, 3 represents mastery of the standard. The foundational skill or base required to begin learning for the standard is 1, intermediary knowledge and skills are 2, and achieving above and beyond the standard is 4. The scale is cumulative, so in order to score a 3 the student must also be able to do 1 and 2.
I have also provided a blank, editable template so that you can adjust the wording of any learning scale that doesn't fit the needs of your classroom.
This item is a zipped folder that includes a ready-to-print PDF file with learning scales for all of the eighth-grade ELA Common Core standards and a PowerPoint file with a blank editable template. If you need help extracting files from a zipped folder, please contact TpT support.
