Not too long ago, and sometimes still today, students are given snipets of rubric standards to fulfill, never really seeing the big picture. Here it is! All of the most effective writing traits and expectations all in one place! Too busy? Too intimidating for our affective filters? Not with this approach. Students are taught smaller chunks of information to guide their writing, yet shown how that one assignment fits into the larger scheme of things. Perfect for writing recovery, RSP, ELD, high school exit exam classes and other programs (like the after school programs that work to help students academically).
