This is a rubric for a writing unit of study where writers create a nonfiction information book. I use this at the beginning of the unit to show my students what is expected of them and then I use it at the end to assess their work. This rubric assesses six skills: facts included in the book, organization (chapters), elaboration (partner sentences), illustrations, features of genre (table of contents) and writing conventions. You can also give it to your students to keep as a guide while they are creating their book. This is what I usually do. I hope you find this useful! Thanks!
