Reflection: Self-Graded Rubrics Writing About Our Daffodils - Section 2: Taking Time to Write


Using this General Science Rubric helps them see that I am expecting clarity on the subject. Their language arts skills are expected to be at a 4 level at this point and they know that openings, closing, spelling, mechanics and organization is mastered at this point. They also have used rubrics enough now that they know what "exceptional and complete" means. This growth has come through the development of rubrics throughout the year. This rubric can be edited to meet specific student needs and differentiation.

I am looking for mastery of the science standard. I created this simple rubric to be used any time I am doing this and am sharing it with the 5th grade team so they can continue as they look for mastery of science standards in writing. It's simple and I think it is focused the way rubrics should be.
