Need a rubric to help you grade your students' opinion pieces?
Want it to align specifically to the CCSS?
Want to use it for multiple grades on your report card?
Here you go!
This rubric is for a 1-4 scale as it identifies 7 different CCSS to be evaluated. It comes in 3 sizes: full page, half page, and quarter page.
It assists you in evaluating the following standards:
Writing 2.1 - Write an opinion piece (introduce topic, state opinion, supply reasons to support opinion, use linking words, and provide a conclusion)
Writing 2.4 - Produce writing in which development and organization are appropriate to purpose and task.
Writing 2.5 - Focus on a topic, revise, and edit.
Language 2.1 - Produce complete simple and compound sentences
Language 2.1 - Create readable document with legible print
Language 2.2 - Demonstrate command of English - capitals and punctuation
Language 2.2 - Demonstrate command of English - learned spelling patterns
At the bottom, there is a section to mark off what the child should also be working on. It is titled "Writing goals to work on."
I hope you find this rubric helpful and useful! Check out my other versions in my shop!
