I use this 5 paragraph persuasive/opinion essay rubric with my 5th grade students to make sure they have included each component in an opinion essay. This rubric will work with any generic persuasive/opinion prompt that you utilize in your classroom after reading two passages and having to come up with evidence based on the two passages to support an extended response prompt.
I have my students use this document while they are writing their essays, so they ensure they are including each component of their essay. After they are finished writing, I have them score their own writing, and then I score their writings with them and write feedback down on the bottom of the rubric.
This is an editable document once you have bought it! So you can change the points or what works for your students.
