Additional Rubrics for SRA High-Performance WRITING: A Structured Approach
(© 2005 SRA/McGraw-Hill)

Each unit in High Performance Writing provides teachers with an element rubric that can be used to score student writing samples for one form of writing taught in that unit. In response to numerous requests from teachers, the authors Fay Goodfellow and Terry Dodds have worked with Jen Fisher, a teacher with a number of years of successfully using this program, to develop rubrics for the other forms of writing taught within each unit in this program.

Teachers are finding the rubrics essential for increasing the writing achievement of students. It is important for students to know the exact qualities that will be scored on their pieces of writing. These rubrics provide the teacher with specific elements that students can use to produce a quality piece of writing. The rubrics can also be used to help teachers determine specific skills that require remediation. Once the targeted remediation has been done with the class or with individual students, they can edit and improve their piece of writing to receive a higher score. It is not necessary for the teacher to re-score the entire piece of writing; only those elements that were improved. After remediation, students do not need to re-write the entire piece of writing. The improvements can be added to the final draft using carets or an “add-in” sheet.

The rubrics may be downloaded and copied for classroom use. If you have any questions about these rubrics, please feel free to contact Terry Dodds at (250) 652-9704 or by email at: terrydodds@shaw.ca.

Also included on this page is a summary sheet that can be used to monitor student and class progress, created and shared by Cyndi Caniglia.
