Writing Rubric with weighted grades focus on organization of essay

I am like all of you. I hate grading essays. It is easy to get lost when trying to grade a thousand things at the same time. This rubric has been made to focus on the main things students need to have in an essay. This is one of the main things my students were missing. What does your student need to have in their essay? Introductory paragraph, body paragraphs, and a closing paragraph.

Focus is on do the have the basic components of an essay like transitions, topic sentences, support, conclusion information, etc.

It is weighted by points. Another reason I hate grading essays is because the students always do so poorly on them. Even taking off one point for every error can lead to negative scores. This rubric is weighted by points. The lowest a student can make is a 53 or a zero if they don't do it!

You will be delighted with their grades and their progress without giving them slamming poor grades that make them not want to try.

Could be modified for any type of essay.
