How do you use rubrics in the secondary ELA classroom? Implement them? Modify them? Dozens of methods for supporting students with rubrics exist. In this post, Melissa and Lauralee present their methods for using rubrics.
Melissa details at Reading and Writing Haven student-centered ways to use rubrics. She involves students in their growth, differentiates for students, and develops common vocabulary. Plus, she has tools for connecting the process to students’ lives.
Lauralee at Language Arts Classroom reevaluates rubrics from year to year to outline fair and achievable results for students. She also allows students to set goals and provides a “goal” spot on most rubrics. See how she takes a student-involved approach with her rubrics.
As always, there is more than one way to teach ELA, and more than one way to meaningfully use rubrics in the secondary ELA classroom.
