This rubric is sufficient for grading body paragraphs of any essay - rhetorical or literary analysis, argumentative, or informational. In addition, this rubric would be appropriate for grades 9-12 when teaching students paragraph structure for composition. I use this rubric with my AP English Language and Composition classes.
The rubric breaks down the elements of a good paragraph: claim/focus, evidence, insight/explanation and organization. The total points calculated are converted into a letter grade.
This rubric would be excellent for peer grading activities or to provide quick feedback to your students regarding their progress.
