Have you ever asked your students to evaluate their knowledge only to find out most are experts? The following scales are designed with writing based tasks to help students prove their understanding. Each standard has its on progressive scale with learning goals. Using learning goals and scales allows each student to understand state standard expectations and encourages them to take ownership in their learning.
In addition, scales have been included without the writing based tasks attached. It is suggested that the scale without the tasks be used to post on the board, while the scales with tasks are provided to individual students.
Included in this file are two different sets of standards. As a Florida educator, it was important to make a product that matched the current standards. However, I have also included a set of learning goals and scales that are coded to common core standards. The main expectations of the standards are equivalent.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT ONLY THE MAIN WRITING STANDARDS HAVE BEEN INCLUDED. (opinion, narrative, informative, and research)
