Designing and Using Rubrics for Reading and Language Arts, K-6 by Joan F. Groeber

Designing and Using Rubrics for Reading and Language Arts provides teachers with a step-by-step guide to creating and using rubrics to meet students' needs. This comprehensive resource offers an overview of rubrics as an teaching tool, directions for creating rubrics, and over 40 examples of rubrics that cover key language processes and skills at the primary and middle school levels. The author also includes suggestions for introducing the rubrics to students, making assignments, and using the rubrics to assess student understanding. This revised edition presents expanded coverage of the process of developing rubrics, and features several new rubrics that address narrative writing, persuasive writing, comprehension monitoring, the use of presentation software, and information literacy skills.
