This elementary writing rubric GUARANTEES drastic improvement in student writing skills after only one grading period! The Simple 6 is the simplest and most direct rubric you will ever use to quickly score student writing! It has been used in Indiana classrooms since 1998 and has helped students increase their writing scores on standardized assessments! Classrooms where only 20% of students were passing state writing assessments have increased to as many as 80% of students passing after learning the components of The Simple 6!
The greatest advantage of this simple analytic scoring rubric is that it not only breaks down the individual components students should focus on, but it also directly guides you 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 walk you through the scoring steps. It’s easy and it’s fast!
