This Reading Response Rubric can be used after students write in their reading journals. This is a quick and easy way to grade their work Students can easily see what they need to do to receive the highest marks on the scoring sheet.
How I used it:
I used this weekly to grade our students' reading journals. After having them read daily for an extended period of time in their books, they wrote a letter to me for 10-15 minutes each day. The letter would not start over each day. Rather, the students would write the date in the right hand column to let me know where their writing began for each day. When it was their day to turn in the notebooks, they would finish the letter. I had 5-6 kids turn in their notebooks each day of the week. The students knew exactly what day their notebooks were due. Hope this explanation sparks some ideas for you when using this rubric! :)
