The official rubric for On-Demand Writing is very confusing for kids to understand. This rubric breaks the original rubric down into 4 categories for the students to understand more easily. I use these so students can grade each others essays after they do a timed writing, and they love it! I also grade their essays myself using this rubric. Each student receives their essay back with 2 feedbacks sheets from classmates, and 1 feedback sheet from me. This has helped my students improve their writing quite a lot!
