New Rules - A CC Aligned Weekly Interactive Writing Notebook Lesson
In this rules CC aligned topic, students are to think of a rule that their parents expect them to obey that they think is unfair. Then they get to think of how they would change that rule or make a new rule that would be fairer for them and for when they have children of their own. This is a time for students to really think about how they would like to be treated and how they should treat others.

Students will be guided through the entire writing process using the following rubrics with appropriate examples to help them be successful:

Prewriting Brainstorming Rubric with examples
Rough Draft Idea Brainstorming Rubric with examples
Rough Draft Rubric
Final Draft Rubric
Illustration Rubric
Student and Teacher Grading Rubric

This an another Judith M Darling product that makes teaching writing less stressful for the teacher by reducing grading time, and less stressful for students by guiding them through the entire writing process, making them responsible for the completion and grading of the their essay.
