Reflection: Conferencing Lesson 3: Ants Work Together to Survive. A Claim Writing Activity. - Section 5: Class Discussion/Wrap Up

 

I created a rubric for this lesson because I wanted a way to grade the essays in a way that was fair, unbiased and consistent. I also reviewed it with the students in order for them to understand that the content was equally as important as the writing components.

  Rubrics help me grade more fairly.
