Welcome to my store, Growing! My students and I are finding that this 6-point rubric is helping to improve their understanding of perseverance and precision in math and also their individual commitments to improvement. Several times a week, each student receives a copy of this rubric before the math block begins. We discuss our three target attributes for perseverance and our three target attributes for precision for that day. They each star one or two areas they wish to focus or improve upon for that day. The students leave the rubric out, and as I teach I use the words perseverance and precision as I reinforce their engagement and effort. At the end of the math lesson, students self-score these two areas based upon this 6- point rubric. The students have been honest and are truly working to improve. I sometimes score the teacher side but most often will write a note of encouragement and return the rubric the following day. I am finding that this rubric has been helpful for us to have a common language.
