Do you want something easy that can help you grade students quickly during discussions? Do you hate printing off a bunch of rubrics, most of which will be trashed without a second glance?
If you like the idea of using one page to grade everyone in a class, look at the Socratic Seminar Class Rubric & Checklist. The rubric is thorough yet allows you to determine your own grading system. You can grade up to 34 students on ONE page! Now you can spend less time on papers and more time watching your kids discuss important concepts.
Look out for an even simpler version of the rubric; it's coming soon!
