This rubric sets clear student expectations for behavior and work. Give this to students at the beginning of the year and have them keep in their binders so they will always know what you want them to do. The descriptions are so detailed there is no room for miscommunication. The rubric is designed for 25 points with an easy grading scale at the bottom so teachers can circle the amount of points the student received for the marking period. Categories include: Preparation, Contribution to Class, Listening, Level of Engagement, Independence and Punctual. Each category is rated from 1 (unacceptable) to 4 (excellent).
