Use these rubrics and corresponding writing samples to guide your students through the process of understanding what good writing looks like. The language within each rubric provides a proper lense for analysis, while the samples themselves are engaging and realistic!
This packet contains four individualized rubrics (adapted from a major writing series, but original in content) and tiered (4-1) writing samples.
The packet is organized by genre:
Expository (How To)
Each section begins with a rubric. The descriptors within the rubrics have statements underlined so students can really zero in on the different performance levels.
The next four pages of every section are tiered writing samples, beginning with 4 and ending with 1, which are all based on the same content so you can compare apples to apples.
I've used this packet with amazing success with my students. Enjoy!
