As a Texas teacher I've been prepping students for their upcoming STAAR test. The test is an expository essay. I searched for kid and teacher friendly rubrics or checklist but couldn't find ones I loved. BUT look no further, I have created one! I personally put these in the little bookmark clear protector on their desk. You could simply cut them and laminate them too. My student dry erase to check off expository elements as they write.
