Enhance literacy instruction using a proven assessment tool—rubrics!

Rubrics are essential tools for providing effective instruction and assessing student achievement.

Literacy consultant Joan Groeber provides educators with a teacher-friendly, step-by-step guide for creating and using rubrics to assess a wide range of literacy skills. Groeber's approach helps ensure that students gain a clear understanding of teacher expectations and assume a greater responsibility for their own learning.

Offering an overview of rubrics as instructional tools, with methods and strategies for developing them, the revised edition includes:

  • Expanded guidelines for creating rubrics
  • More than 40 time-saving, preconstructed model rubrics covering key literacy skills
  • Rubrics at both primary and intermediate grade levels
  • Strategies for introducing rubrics to students, and suggestions for using the rubrics
  • New rubrics that reflect the expanding field of literacy education, including information literacy and technology use

Using this comprehensive resource, teachers can design rubrics to meet their specific classroom needs, giving students the opportunity to identify and achieve high levels of performance.
