This product includes 10 unique Reader Response Rubrics that are specifically aligned to the Common Core State Anchor Standards for Reading (http://www.corestandards.org/ELA-Literacy/CCRA/R). These rubrics apply to all CCSS-aligned text-dependent questions for independent or in-class texts.
Because the anchor standards were used to create these rubrics, they do apply to multiple grade levels. As these rubrics are designed for written reader responses, the rubrics also incorporate CCSS Writing Anchor Standard W.4, which addresses clear and coherent writing.
The rubrics are included in both color and black and white versions. The color versions are incredibly helpful for instructional grouping. Students can be easily placed in color groups for small group instruction.
It is important to note that the language and phrasing of the rubrics is adopted from the Common Core Anchor Standards. Full credit for the language and phrasing of these rubrics is given to the Common Core State Standards Initiative.
