I created this writing rubric to use in my personal classroom because I could not find one that I really liked. I wanted one that was simple so students and parents wouldn't mind reading it. It was created in PowerPoint 97-2003 and is editable. I love it because I can use it with any type of writing. It also gives the students clear feedback on what they do well and what areas they need to improve. I included a comment section because I love letting the students know that I take the time to read their writing and comment on their work. It really makes students want to try harder when they see comments and they can't wait to see what their teacher writes to them.
