I created this mini-rubric writing journal quick check for my Picture's Worth a Thousand Words Photo Writing Prompt Unit
, but it can be modified and used for any writing journal or student project.
I love how this rubric helps me provide feedback to my students quickly and easily. In situations where we're encouraging students to take risks, I've found it’s important not to become overly-focused on the students’ mistakes; to do so could stem their creativity and make them reluctant to write.
This rubric allows you to focus on what they’ve done right. In addition to checking off the statements that apply, there is a bit of room for a comment, smiley face or simple signature.
Hope you enjoy this freebie and that you'll check out my TPT store
