Marzano scales are well-crafted learning goals based on the Common Core Standards. They give a clear direction to the students about descriptions of levels of understanding and performance.
The scales in this product include:
ELA - Reading - INFORMATIONAL - Key Ideas and Details
ELA - Reading - INFORMATIONAL - Craft and Structure
ELA - Reading - INFORMATIONAL - Integration of Knowledge and Ideas
I give each student a copy of the scales and asked them daily to track themselves on the scale. I also make a poster of each scale and display the appropriate scale to the goals being taught.
