Starting second semester, the first week of February, I will start using the rubric below to grade student writing. There are six traits the rubric focuses on, however only one trait will be graded for each writing assignment. I will explain the traits to the students: colors, action, words, spaces, letters, and lines and let them know which one will be focused on for that writing. You will also see on the top of the writing which trait was focused on and how many stars the work got.
