Print and go! I've converted the FSU Argumentative Writing Rubric into student friendly language. Students always want to know how they are being graded, and this rubric tells them how in language they understand.
If you enjoyed this free resource be sure to check out my Writing Style: Unit Bundle! With twenty-two pages and ten activities, this bundle has everything you need to improve writing style, and includes lessons on concision, register, replacing "to be" verbs, omitting "I", periodic sentence structure, transitions, and quote integration. I use these lessons in both my high school and college English courses. As a result, I always see an improvement in student writing.
