Are your students working on paragraph composition?
This rubric is intended to help teachers of English Language Arts and/or English as a Second Language.
Students are evaluated on five categories for their paragraph composition: Content, Organization, Spelling, Grammar/Punctuation/Capitalization and Topic Sentence.
There are four scoring categories to comply with the traditional 1-4 scoring scale: Exceptional, Meets Expectations, Below Expectations, Needs Work.
My hope is that you find this rubric useful for working with your students or that you use components of my rubric to build and structure a rubric specific to your needs!
Thank you for looking and for supporting teachers' work!
