These rubrics are based on our county’s new writing textbooks, Being a Writer. However, the rubrics can be used in any writing curriculum, and cover the following CCSS in Writing and Language:
Included are rubrics for narrative, fiction, informative, nonfiction, letters, poems, and opinion writing.
I have the rubrics in various styles and colors, including blackline masters. You are welcome to choose the format you like best. There are smaller copies of the blackline rubrics for student writing notebooks, folders, or whatever you choose. Each rubric (and color) has its own numbered rubric, which can be posted next to it. After each question on the rubric, students decide how they would rate their work on a scale of 1-3 (3 being the highest). This helps them to take more care in checking their writing. Of course, modeling the use of each rubric is necessary, but it will be worth it in the end!
Please check the preview for examples of the rubrics.
