Product Description
This rubric actually gives two grades -- one for the editing process and one for the actual content of what they wrote. We brainstorm, write a rough draft, and then switch papers with a partner to have him or her edit it before re-writing a final draft. So there is a grade for that entire editing process up in the top left hand corner of the rubric. I assign that 10 points. Then, I read the final draft and assign points based on the rubric. The categories for earning points are: having at least 3 body paragraphs, having an introduction/conclusion paragraph, including a main idea, writing in complete sentences, staying on topic, writing in 3rd person, writing formally (leaving out text-speak and slang), and supporting opinions with facts. This portion of their essay is worth 39 points. I have also included some generic comments that I find myself writing on almost every essay at the top of this rubric. I just check off whatever applies to the essay I'm grading, and I'm done! I've included two per sheet, so I just cut them in half and staple one to a student's essay to grade.
