K-12 Student & Teacher Friendly Common Core and PARCC Aligned Writing Rubrics

K-12 Student & Teacher Friendly Common Core and PARCC Aligned Writing Rubrics

Using a similar rubric across grades increases the validity and reliability of student growth comparisons. This K-12 set of Common Core aligned writing rubrics includes one set of writing rubric sets for each grade K-8 as well as rubrics for 9-10 and 11-12 grade band sets. Within each grade level and grade-band set is a teacher friendly rubric aligned to the Common Core Standards as well as a student friendly checklist. In addition to being aligned to the Common Core Standards, the rubrics are also aligned to PARCC's most recently published Condensed Writing Rubric for Prose Constructed Response Grades 6-11 (July 29, 2014). Dr. Dea's rubric is a framework for evaluating argument, informative, and narrative writing. Following PARCC's expanded rubric form, Dr. Dea's rubric delineates Common Core descriptors among five criteria categories: Reading Comprehension, Writing Development, Writing Organization, Clarity of Language, and Language Conventions. Unlike the PARCC rubric, Dr. Dea's rubric series provides a tool for both the teacher and the students: a one page self-evaluation checklist for the student and a one-page evaluation rubric for the teacher. Additionally, Dr. Dea's rubric embeds Common Core grade-level language standards specifying grammar and conventions expectations. This set of rubrics is intended for single teacher use at each grade with the right to reproduce the documents for classroom/student distribution.

Read to Learn & Confirm

The set of instructional materials includes two types of organizers: one to promote reading as research and the second to promote analytic thinking through comparison. Included in the document are clear instructions on how to use the materials and an example to support instruction in teaching comparison. This resource can be used to differentiate instruction and assess prior knowledge as well as student growth through reading, speaking, and listening. These organizers ask students to go beyond the K-W-L and identify where informational text supports what they know, clarifies or corrects their thinking, and adds to their knowledge base. Used in its entirety, this set of PDF form documents support Common Core Reading Anchor Standards #1 and #9 as well as Writing Anchor Standard #8. Did you know the most single referenced cognitive thought process emphasized throughout the Common Core Reading Standards is "compare." Using this set of organizers (appropriate for all grades...I have personally used them in both primary and high school with no problem!), you can promote higher level thinking skills, develop background knowledge, and teach your students how to structure a comparative analysis.
