Product Description
This is a rubric I use when teaching how to write a fantastic paragraph. In short, it details the ingredients in a well-structured paragraph--claim, evidence/reasons, explanation of evidence, and clincher. These labels all correspond with Common Core language and the descriptions for each category were inspired by the common core standards. This is a huge time-saver in terms of grading; I assign a paragraph on a topic and use this to give them either a 5, 3, or 1 for each piece. It allows for quick, specific, standard-driven feedback that the kids find very useful.
