This, of course, is seldom achievable. Simply add up all the points and you will have a percentage grade for the student's paper. This rubric works best for assignments with a specific purpose.

Write On: The Kid-Friendly Way to Write

With a carefully crafted process, students start with simple sentences, turn their thoughts into paragraphs, develop their ideas into essays, then combine their skills to create a thesis.

In between structured reports, creative writing exercises stretch their imagination and build their writing style.

The value of this unique writing program is it encourages students to express their own ideas. They see a non-intimdating student sample, and begin to use the model to write about topics of interest to them.
