This rubric is used as an incentive to allow students to see what is expected of them on standardized writing tests. It is an incentive that will result in an ice cream party once most students have met the requirements and practiced with the rubric. This will help your students set goals and help you determine what students need to zone in on in writing.
For this rubric you use each beginning letter of the sentence to determine if they correctly mastered it on the rubric. They can clearly see what they did right and what needs to be focused on. We did a few trial runs at first.It helped them pass their writing test for the year. My kids loved this and really worked hard to get the works!
