This easily adaptable rubric allows for students to practice writing skills as they demonstrate vocabulary acquisition. It is designed as an assessment tool for a recurring assignment in paragraph writing, and can be used for each vocabulary unit. The changing writing focus allows the teacher to target specific aspects of writing for student practice. It has been used to transform student writing from 5th grade to 12th grade, and if used regularly over time, teaches students to avoid the mistakes they are most likely to make.
