Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Writer's Workshop: Writing and Revising Narratives - Section 2: Rubric from


We have been using in  my school for years, but this year has represented a decisive push coming from the teachers to use it in order to house student writing, reflection, do plagiarism checks, etc.  The affordances of the program are still being codified by me and my colleagues, and I think that I need to do more in order to house  student work in my class online in a meaningful way (W.9-10.6).  

Ideally, I'd like to have an online portfolio that stretches over four years and allows students the chance to reflect and select their best work for "publication." 

My students have been doing a good job with uploading their work in, and the rubrics are well articulated.  I was glad today that I decided to focus on one or two elements of the rubric, as the entire CCSS Narrative rubric is a bit too texty and seemed to be eluding them.  I did notice flashes of recognition and some head nods as we moved through the two core elements together.
