The Simple 6 Mini-Rubric
The greatest advantage of this simple analytic rubric is that it not only breaks down the individual components students should focus on, but it also directly guides teachers to the "remediation areas" for each student! Data-driven instruction at its best!
You have a review sheet that breaks down the details under each component. These details will be the focus of your mini lessons. Once you have some student writing samples, I'll walk you through the scoring steps. It's easy and it's fast.
Once you use The Simple 6 Writing Rubric, you'll never go back to a complex holistic rubric. Thousands of Indiana teachers of the last 15 years agree!
