Narrative and Expository Writing Rubrics

WHEW!  I FINALLY finished my own rubrics for expository and narrative writing.  These are based on the STAAR Writing rubrics from TEA.  I was tired of thumbing through 4 pages of text and trying to determine those little differences between the scores, so I took the important parts and put them into a rubric that is one page and easier to follow.  I also created a rubric that is kid-friendly so that my students can see what they do well and where they still need improvement.  AND…I created a rubric with simply numbers for scoring at a glance.  All-in-all…5 pages of awesomeness that I can use from now on…or until TEA decides to change it up again!

You can check out a preview of the products below.
