I created this scoring rubric to help my students understand how I would evaluate their weekly article assignment. It is a PDF, but if people are interested, I can create a word document for you to make changes - just message me.
It includes: How much each section of the article is worth: quiz, writing, and annotations, a rubric for scoring their writing, and a list of tips for annotating a text.
I use this rubric when scoring articles on our students' newsela.com accounts, but this could easily be used in the classroom.
It is free because I took portions of the writing rubric from other rubrics. The rest is my own original work.
