I use this simple rubric for the reflections students are required to do about a quote of the day that is on the board upon entering the classroom each morning. This can be customized to be a reflection about a specific passage, text or photograph. I use inspirational quotes to start the day. Many students get use to this as part of our routine. I glue this in to their notebook flap on the inside, so when I go to evaluate each entry they have a guideline. Some students try to skip over this or put minimal effort into this bellwork, per se. This rubric helps to keep them accountable. Its all positive!
