If you feel like taking home stacks of papers to grade on the weekends (and bringing that same stack back on Monday ungraded) is going to be your life forever - think again! This Rubric Starter Kit is exactly what you need to reshape and rethink your essay grading life. This rubric is designed for the busy teacher who wants to improve her writing instruction and also reduce the amount of time she spends grading.
The rubric is set up with five main categories: CLAIM, DEVELOPMENT, COHESION, and STYLE & CONVENTIONS. I've annotated the document with notes so that you can see exactly how I use it in my classroom!
WHY YOU NEED THIS RUBRIC STARTER KIT:
You're spending way too much time "grading" and not enough time providing feedback. Let the rubric do MORE of the work so that you can assign writing more often (with this rubric you'll feel less overwhelmed!) and you can take back your life from the black hole nightmare of grading.
